New Jersey Values


New Jersey is where people of all nationalities come to find the comforts of home. We’re proud to have the second-highest concentration of foreign-born residents in the United States and the #1 most diverse city in the country (Jersey City). New Jersey also ranks #1 in K-12 Foreign Language Enrollment.

Women’s Rights

Women’s rights are protected through the Freedom of Reproductive Choice Act, which was signed into law by Governor Phil Murphy in 2022 and codifies the constitutional right to freedom of reproductive choice. WalletHub recently ranked New Jersey the #2 safest state for women.

LGBTQ+ Support

New Jersey is a safe haven for gender-affirming health care. In 2023, Governor Phil Murphy signed an Executive Order that directed all state departments and agencies to protect healthcare professionals and patients against potential repercussions resulting from providing, receiving, or traveling to New Jersey to obtain gender-affirming healthcare services.

Equity and Inclusion in Schools

In a time when human rights are being stripped away and diversity, equity, and inclusion initiatives are being suppressed, New Jersey stands as a reminder that students flourish in an environment where they know they are safe and celebrated for their diversity. New Jersey was the first state to require students to learn about the societal and historical contributions of LGBTQ+ figures and people with disabilities in all subject areas.
