New Jersey has the fourth highest number of hate groups in our country, according to a 2014 Southern Poverty Law Center study.
We must organize to make sure our society is protected from hate and that the proper mechanisms are in place throughout our government, laws, educational system, and media to oppose hate. That is the work we do at Garden State Equality and we will never stop.
You can help by being visible and attending one of the many rallies taking place throughout our state listed below.
