OU advocates for tuition aid

Orthodox groups bands together to lobby Trenton for help paying for school

The OU Advocacy Center — formerly known as the Orthodox Union’s Institute for Public Affairs — has added “mini-missions” to its outreach efforts. Among the first group to take advantage of this opportunity were local advocates from Bergen County, who traveled to Trenton on February 20.

Participants included 12 delegates from Teaneck, Bergenfield, and Fair Lawn, said Josh Pruzansky, OU Advocacy-NJ’s regional director.

Such missions are vital, Mr. Pruzansky said, because “legislators know that anyone who comes all the way down there must really be committed to the issues they’re advocating for. And they know that these people are representing others, so it’s like a mission of 500. It resonates with them.”
