Organization Background

The Citizens Campaign is a 501(c)(3) non-profit, non-partisan organization and its core mission is to recruit citizens from outside the political establishment and empower them to participate in the leadership of their hometowns and beyond by teaching a solutions-oriented 'no-blame' approach. Thousands of people have been educated by The Citizens Campaign and are stepping up to the plate bringing evidence-based solutions and a pragmatic, positive approach to our civic life and to all levels of government in the Garden State.

Chairman Harry Pozycki brings over 30 years of leadership experience to the table, including a record of innovative citizen empowerment policies and the successful creation and adoption of various State legislative initiatives. He was named the Philadelphia Inquirer's 2008 Citizen of the Year and in 2012, he received the Governor's Jefferson Award for Civic Innovation.

The Citizen Campaign's Board of Trustees, Law and Policy Task Force, and our coaches and teachers, are comprised of top experts in law, politics and citizen participation. Our leaders include Gary Stein, former New Jersey Supreme Court Justice and Policy Director for former Governor Thomas Kean, Michael Delli Carpini, Dean of the University of Pennsylvania's Annenberg School of Communications, and C. Roy Epps, President of the Greater Civic League of New Brunswick.
