Who We Are
Progressive Democrats of New Jersey is a grassroots organization dedicated to electing progressive candidates and pushing for political reform on behalf of the people of New Jersey. We are a diverse, energetic, dedicated coalition that fights for fairness in politics and true justice for all. Since its founding in August of 2019, PDNJ has taken root as one of the foremost progressive advocacy organizations in the state because we do not ask permission to advocate for the people of New Jersey.
Within a year, we have expanded from a single chapter in Union County to chapters throughout the state including the counties of Bergen, Burlington, Essex, Hudson, Morris, Middlesex, and Passaic. Together, we fight for progressive issues including ballot reform, halting political corruption, supporting criminal justice reform, person-centric public health initiatives, increasing public transportation, promoting affordable housing, among other progressive causes.
