As part of the In Your Neighborhood initiative, NJTV hosted a community forum, tackling local issues and solutions. Moderated by an NJTV News correspondent, panels featured policy experts, thought leaders and advocates. In Long Branch, the forum covered gentrification, in Princeton the event covered poverty, and the events in Vineland and West Orange focused on drug addition, treatment and recovery.
I love that @NJTVNews is putting the spotlight on the garden part of The Garden State, my home! We are generations of passionate people keeping watch over fertile land. We know its worth. #NJTVIYN– Bonnie S., via Twitter
