When & Where
PICO New Jersey
People Improving Communities through Organizing in New Jersey
(PICO New Jersey) is an interfaith and multi-racial network of faith-communities working to advance a racial and economic justice agenda in the Garden State.
Along with our Camden affiliate, Camden Churches Organized for People (CCOP), PICO New Jersey has a team of 8 organizers working with community leaders and allies to secure policy change at the local, state and federal levels. CCOP has a 26-year track record of success, helping to forge partnerships to improve conditions for working families in Camden.
We are affiliated with the PICO National Network (www.piconetwork.org), which involves more than 1200 congregations in 17 states across the US in faith-based community organizing initiatives to reduce racial and economic disparities – making us one of the largest community-based efforts in the country.
For the past two years, we have worked with partners in Camden, Trenton and Newark to improve health outcomes in urban centers by engaging and empowering residents and providers in high-cost/high-need healthcare “hot spots” to improve the delivery of care.
