Regional Community Networks = Lasting Impact!

Regional Community Networks are made up of individuals, corporations and community organizations that serve as key stakeholders and ambassadors for the advancement of the mission through community partnerships, fundraising and diversity educational programs.
These regional networks are comprised of organizations from across the state of NJ.  The volunteers that participate in the networks offer the organization multiple years of experience and expertise in the areas of leadership development, social justice, advocacy, community-building, capacity building and fundraising.  Each year we recognize the efforts of NJ’s leaders, businesses and communities to build inclusion.
