NJ Organizing Project To Host Panel Discussion

The Howell Times — June 11, 2018

NJ Organizing Project To Host Panel Discussion TOMS RIVER — In December, Congress passed tax legislation that is projected to create a $1.5 trillion deficit. Many of the laws benefits will be felt by larger corporations. States like New Jersey are hard hit by the elimination of state and local income tax, or SALT, deductions. Now, our representatives must decide how to pay for these tax cuts.

Join the New Jersey Organizing Project on June 12 at 6 p.m. for a panel discussion on what's at stake for our families and communities and how we can protect programs — like Medicaid and Medicare, and food assistance — that gives families a hand up when they need it most. Because addiction and the opioid crisis have touched so many of our loved ones, we will also discuss how these programs currently help people struggling with addiction, and what more our communities need to address the crisis.

The program will be held at the Disciples Hall, Christ Episcopal Church, 415 Washington Street, Toms River. Sandwiches and light refreshments will be served. Please bring canned and dry foods to donate for the churches food pantry.
