With indicators showing one-fourth of all seniors and one-third of all people in New Jersey struggling to meet basic needs, the Anti-Poverty Network convened its annual summit December 3, 2013 at the Crowne Plaza Monroe to address rising levels of poverty in the state and issue a “Call to Invest in the People of New Jersey.” 

At the summit, the Anti-Poverty Network (APN) of New Jersey convened a broad cross-section of community leaders, state and local policymakers, advocacy organizations, educators and faith-based groups to discuss ways to address the most critical issues affecting financial insecurity in our state: housing, hunger, healthcare and economic empowerment. The ultimate goal of the Summit was to lay the groundwork for a partnership with state officials and leaders in business, education and community development to develop strategies to ensure a safe, productive and stable future for New Jersey residents.

On this edition of Live From Trenton, we will speak with Jim Jacob, APN Chair and President and CEO of NJSHARES, Joyce Campbell, APN Vice Chair and Associate Executive Director for External Affairs, Catholic Charities and Assemblywoman Gabriela Mosquera (D4), who gave the keynote address at the event.
