We are happy to report that four of New Jersey’s elected officials in Washington have expressed their intentions to attend the July 25 Congressional Reception.
- U.S. Senator Cory Booker (NJ-D),
- U.S. Representative Donald Norcross (NJ-D-1),
- U.S. Representative Frank Pallone (NJ-D-6), and
- U.S. Representative Leonard Lance (NJ-R-7)
These elected officials and their 10 other colleagues that make up New Jersey’s delegation to Washington, D.C. and have also received invitations to the event will have the opportunity to hear the stories of their constituents who have been impacted by homelessness.
Last year, twelve of the fourteen members of New Jersey’s delegation attended the 2017 Congressional Reception.
Today Monday, July 16, 2018, Monarch Housing Associates, along with thirty-five partners, will be hosting a webinar at 1:00p.m. discussing the details of the Congressional Reception. So far thirty-nine attendees have registered for the webinar. The webinar is a great opportunity to ask any questions you may have regarding logistics for the event or about your role as an attendee.

- Reminding your elected officials that affordable housing is an important issue for New Jersey residents is important.
- Elected officials are more likely to make favorable decisions towards affordable housing and ending homelessness if they know voters are passionate about these issues.
- If you are not yet registered to vote, or do not know if you are registered to vote, you will have an opportunity to do so while on the bus to Washington.
- Voting for elected officials that have made a commitment to increasing affordable housing is an easy way to end the battle with homelessness in New Jersey and in the country as a whole.
If you are passionate about providing affordable and supportive housing in New Jersey, you should attend the July 25th, a Congressional Reception will be held at the Dirksen Senate Auditorium in Washington D.C. This event will allow New Jersey residents who are working poor, below the poverty line and or impacted by homelessness to urge their elected officials in Washington to make No Cuts to Housing and remind them that Opportunity Starts at Home.
We know that by joining together and amplifying our voices, we can have an impact on the decisions that are made in Washington DC. Join Monarch Housing Associates and our 35 partners from New Jersey to make the case that homelessness is a solvable problem. The federal government must be a full partner in ensuring an adequate breadth of services are available to prevent children, people with disabilities, the elderly, and all of our neighbors in NJ from experiencing the homelessness.
Register today to attend the Congressional Reception. Everyone needs to register even if you are traveling on your own.
