In Nov. 2021 after ten years of our evolving mission and impact, we changed our name to Gathering Ground. You may still find reference to our old name Creative New Jersey in posts created prior to Nov. 2021.

Your Vote Counts!  Elevating Voter Equity in the Upcoming Election

The upcoming election is a pivotal moment in our democracy, and it’s crucial that each and every one of us recognizes the power we hold as voters. Your vote is not just a choice; it is a right and your voice in shaping the future of your community, your state, and your country.

At Gathering Ground we believe in the importance of voter equity. Voter equity means that every eligible voter, should have an equal opportunity to participate in the United States democratic process and that of our state.

To learn more about efforts to create a more accessible and fair electoral process, check out the League of Women Voters initiatives and consider getting involved!

Find your polling place and get more info about your state and local (check out your county Board of Elections) candidates as you get ready to head to the polls, so that you can make the best decision for you and your family and prioritize justice and equity. By voting for officials who share our values, we have the ability to influence policies and programs that can have positive impacts on our communities.

Remember, your vote counts, and it’s a powerful tool for change. Participatory democracy requires all of us to do our part. Together, we can make a difference.

Your Vote Counts!

We’re three weeks out from our last Communities in Conversation of 2023!

During the upcoming session, we ask the following questions:

“What organizational equity issue are you trying to solve and where do you need a partner, or an alliance or access to certain kinds of resources (knowledge, capital, etc)? Where are you stuck?”


“Before Hammonton’s Call to Collaboration, I did not know that I was surrounded by people who, despite our differences, care about the same issues: the safety of our town, the well-being of our families, the opportunity to contribute to our community, etc. Knowing that there were other like-minded people in my community gave me the courage to act.”

– Ivette Guillermo-McGahee – Executive Director, Allies in Caring (Hammonton)
