Be Heard

Educate the Candidates About ALICE!

Join United Way of Northern New Jersey in telling the candidates running to represent our region in Congress that you care deeply about income inequality and the impact this growing imbalance has on the health and well-being of our local communities. 

As our research shows, there are 120,000 northern New Jersey households who are in poverty or are ALICE (Asset Limited, Income Constrained, Employed). That’s one-quarter of our region’s households. These are our family members, friends, and neighbors who despite working hard, cannot afford the basics. ALICE is the economic backbone of our community. We rely on ALICEs daily – they are our child care workers, mechanics, home health aides, and store clerks. When ALICE can’t pay the bills, we all pay the price. We need a comprehensive approach that makes child care affordable for working families, supports pro-work, anti-poverty tax credits, and helps family caregivers with the high financial and health stresses of caring for ill, aging or disabled loved ones. 

Note: We submit your letter through candidates' contact forms. Your voice deserves to be successfully delivered, so please fill out all the fields below marked with an *. You'll be able to review your letter on the next page before sending.
