Youth Power Project


Building Youth Power: MRNJ’s youth organizing group is a force to be reckoned with – hundreds of immigrant, Black and Latinx youth have joined the organization, led successful campaigns for:

  • Winning the Financial Aid bill for New Jersey Dreamers and Undocumented Youth
  • Including youth in the $15 minimum wage increase bill
  • Fighting back against DACA’s repeal
  • Winning a Student Success Center - a peer lead college prep program  - the first of its kind in New Jersey.
