Economic Justice Update – Sept 2011

The main focus of the Economic Justice Task Force has been working for affordable housing, advocating for those in need of affordable housing in the following ways:

After conditionally vetoing legislation pertaining to the Council on Affordable Housing, responsible for implementing the New Jersey’s Fair Housing Act, Gov. Christie recently abolished COAH, transferring its responsibilities to the Department of Community Affairs.  The Fair Share Housing Center plans to challenge this move in court.  UULMNJ is actively spearheading a faith community response in support of these court actions.

Please contact director@uulmnj.org more information and to get involved with the task force.
