Advocates for Children of New Jersey (ACNJ) is an education and advocacy organization that educates the public and policymakers and equips caregivers with the information they need to be a child’s strongest ally. It focuses on child welfare and juvenile justice, early learning, healthcare for children, and support for low-income families.

This project supports the development and dissemination of a strategic communications plan that will put into action key recommendations from a 2013-2014 ACNJ Right from the Start project funded by The Nicholson Foundation. The plan educates policymakers and other stakeholders about needed improvements to New Jersey’s early education systems; makes a data-driven case for increased public and private investments in child care; and builds a network of champions for high-quality early childhood programs among the New Jersey business community.
