LAN Foundation Provides Testimony in Collective Advocacy with Fair Share Housing Center
On June 2, 2022 LAN Foundation's Housing Access Organizer, along with Fair Share Housing Center, provided public testimony on Bill S777/A1519 and Bill A2246 in efforts to close New Jersey's staggering racial wealth gap. With home ownership being the primary driver of wealth in the country, Latino New Jersey residents deserve the equal opportunity of benefiting financially from home ownership.

The Latino Action Network Foundation serves as a member of NJSOARH's Advisory Committee engaging key stakeholders in identifying concerns and priorities; shaping the research and research products around housing in New Jersey.
