Local activists: Ask your mayor or councilperson to introduce a resolution in support of legalization with a focus on racial justice. Use this template to draft your community's resolution, filling in your town's name, and then share it with your elected officials. Get together with other legalization activists to persuade your elected officials to adopt the resolution. Through this effort, we can show leaders in our state the depth of support for legalization and New Jersey's commitment to racial justice.
We’d love to see your results! Please keep us posted, share copies of resolutions, and definitely alert us to victories! And, please contact NJUMR if you need help building support for the resolution in your community. You can always reach us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
