IMMIGRATION RESOURCES IN NEW JERSEY
EthnicNJ.com has added another set of resources for New Jersey communities: organizations working to protect immigrants and their rights. At a time in the United States when members of minority communities, refugees, and immigrants – our families, friends and neighbors – face an escalating risk of being targeted for harassment and discrimination, and even losing legal protections, EthnicNJ will do what we can to protect and support the most vulnerable New Jerseyans. Connecting people with information and resources to protect themselves and others is one thing EthnicNJ can do in 2017.
