Tell Gov. Murphy to Strengthen New Jersey's Media and Fund the Civic Info Consortium
Thanks to overwhelming public support, legislative leaders in the New Jersey statehouse have reintroduced the Civic Info Bill.
Civic Info Bill A3628 would establish the Civic Info Consortium, a proposed collaboration among journalists, organizers, tech innovators and higher-education institutions designed to transform how our communities stay informed, strengthen local media, provide impactful reporting, and amplify the voices of people of color and other marginalized communities.
Next week Gov. Murphy will unveil his first budget, which will set priorities for lawmakers for the rest of the year. Keeping our communities informed and engaged needs to be at the top of his list.
We’ve got only a few days. Tell Gov. Murphy to listen to the thousands of New Jerseyans who have made calls, signed petitions and lobbied at the statehouse to support the consortium.
Urge Gov. Murphy to fund the Civic Info Consortium in his first budget.
