New Jersey Political Action for Candidate Election (PACE) builds political power for social workers through candidate elections and is the political action arm of the NASW-NJ.  

As a political action committee, PACE endorses and financially contributes to candidates from any party who support our policy agenda. The New Jersey PACE Board of Trustees endorses and contributes to local election candidates and those running for State Senate and General Assembly; national PACE makes endorsements in U.S. Congressional races with advise from the Chapter.

NASW-NJ PACE has announced its candidate endorsements for the 2021 New Jersey general election.

PACE has endorsed 74 incumbent candidates based on their support for the organization's progressive legislative agenda, alignment with the values and ethics espoused by the profession, and demonstrated support for the vulnerable and under-represented individuals and communities social workers serve.

PACE has also endorsed 18 challengers/open seat candidates who have presented a strong commitment to addressing issues of racial, social, environmental, and economic justice, as well as strong support for advancement in women's rights, LGBTQ+ rights, and the needs of those individuals struggling with mental health and substance abuse disorders.
