For more than 100 years the women of NCJW/Essex have worked tirelessly in the pursuit of social justice for our community. We strive to influence public policy and improve social conditions for women, children and families through lobbying, grassroots activism, coalition-building, and educational training.

After Abortion Care Kits
After Abortion Care Kits show people seeking abortions in New Jersey that there are people who are thinking of them and who care. The kits, filled with necessary and comfort items, are distributed by our partners. After Abortion Care Kits are now being assembled by other community organizations.
