united black agenda

THE UNITED BLACK AGENDA was created in 2017 and is a coalition convened by Fair Share Housing Center that provides a shared space and collective voice to promote the health and welfare of Black New Jerseyans. Over the years, the United Black Agenda has had great success influencing administrative and legislative policy to benefit Black residents of New Jersey.

MISSION: Acknowledging and proactively attacking the root causes of inequality, the United Black Agenda aggressively pursues legislation, policies, and programs to mitigate the ravages of white supremacy and affirm the tenets of democracy, freedom, and liberty.


VISION: All of New Jersey is better when Black communities enjoy full political participation and representation to ensure widespread economic security and opportunity. The United Black Agenda provides a shared space for organizations dedicated to promoting the welfare of Black New Jerseyans and addressing the state and nation’s history of discrimination, marginalization, and subjugation.
