NASW-NJ LEGISLATIVE AGENDA:

Historically Oppressed Communities

NASW-NJ advocates for ongoing efforts to eliminate racial and ethnic discrimination and promote human rights and social justice for all by:

 

  • Promoting state and local efforts to develop comprehensive, multilingual and multicultural educational curricula;
  • Promoting state and local efforts to establish school and community-based compensatory education and after-school programs, expand access to high quality pre-school, and modify disciplinary procedures that contribute to the school-to-prison pipeline;
  • Maximizing access of historically oppressed populations to decent employment and security through quality job training and apprenticeship programs, adequate unemployment benefits, affirmative action, and accessible, affordable child care;
  • Implement measures to end “de facto” segregation of communities, schools, and public places;
  • Ensure fair and equitable treatment of racial and ethnic minorities in the criminal justice system, and enhance services to facilitate re-entry after incarceration;
  • Remediate racial disparities in juvenile detention and out of home child welfare placement; and
  • Remove barriers to, and promote fair participation of historically oppressed racial and ethnic minorities in the political process.
