After years of grassroots activism and pressure, Represent New Jersey successfully got the “End Dark Money” Law (S-150) on the books. The law is set to go into effect soon, but the Koch brothers’ organization, Americans for Prosperity, is suing to stop the law with an injunction to order to keep dark money in New Jersey politics.
On September 17th, Represent New Jersey leaders will face the Koch Brothers in court for the first time. Join members and concerned New Jersey citizens outside the courthouse to let our NJ Chapter know we have their back, and that New Jersey-ans deserve to know who is trying to buy political influence.
 
This injunction has the potential to sideline the enormous progress that has been made in the fight against dark money in New Jersey for months, if not years. We need to make sure Represent New Jersey leaders know the people have their back as these special interest groups hold political transparency hostage in our elections.  Join us for this historic anti-corruption fight.

We are fighting back and we need your help.

Represent NJ Sept. 21 Meeting Featuring Andrew Zwicker & Ranked Choice Voting

We’ll take a summer break in August and will return in full force in the fall.  Our next meeting on September 21st will kickoff a new campaign.  And, to do that, we will have a special guest speaker — Assemblyman Andrew Zwicker talking about his bill to bring “Ranked Choice Voting” to New Jersey (A-5205).  We will also hear the latest updates on court challenges and remedies to the “Dark Money” Law (S-150), where we should expect insights from Assemblyman Zwicker too.
We’re aiming to have “SRO” in the Fahs theater at UUCP on 9/21 at 11 AM 
at 50 Cherry Hill Rd, Princeton.  Come early, bring friends, and claim your seat!
