Because there is a lack of relevant and timely information about state-wide and local issues that affect all residents of New Jersey, the Community Foundation of NJ partnered with former Newark Star-Ledger reporters to create an interactive website that features high-quality, in-depth journalism that encourages civic and community participation and provides an understanding of the vital issues affecting our state today in education, the environment, and public finance.
Thanks to additional funding from the Knight Foundation and William Penn Foundation, the website went live in May, and has now received recognition as an excellent and unique source of news, information and conversation.
Check-out www.njspotlight.com to learn more about what is happening in New Jersey, and then send the link to your friends and family.
