    A former Black Panther who was convicted of murdering a New Jersey State trooper 49 years ago will soon be sprung on parole. New Jersey Supreme Court on Tuesday ruled 3-2 to allow 85-year-old Sundiata Acoli, the Black Liberation Army activist who killed Trooper Werner Foerster in 1973, to go free. Acoli had appeared before the parole board eight times since 1993 — when he became eligible for parole on his lifetime prison sentence. “In light of Acoli’s verbal renunciation of violence as an acceptable way to achieve social change; more than two decades infraction-free in the federal prison system;...

    Governor Phil Murphy (D-NJ) said Tuesday on MSNBC’s “Katy Tur Reports” that “war has been declared on the American woman” when asked to react to the Politico report that the Supreme Court has made a 5-4 decision to overturn abortion. Tur said, “Even if the 1973 decision is reversed, abortion would be illegal in states like New Jersey. It is more than a handful of Democratic red states that codified the abortion into state law. Joining me now is Governor Phil Murphy. Governor, thank you for being with us. What is your reaction?”

    he world faces a growing threat of Russia using nuclear weapons as the nation continues to face losses in Ukraine, according to one U.S. senator.

    California and 15 states that want the U.S. Postal Service to electrify its mail delivery vehicles are suing to halt purchases of thousands of gas-powered trucks as the agency modernizes its delivery fleet. Three separate lawsuits, filed Thursday by the states and environmental groups in New York and California, ask judges to order a more thorough environmental review before the Postal Service moves forward with the next-generation delivery vehicle program. Plaintiffs contend that purchases of fossil fuel-powered delivery vehicles will cause environmental harm for decades to come. The lawsuits could further delay the Postal Service's efforts to replace the ubiquitous...

Christie said such work has “been incredibly helpful to lift people out of poverty and give their families a...

    Over the past four years, my Nurture NJ work has allowed me to meet countless New Jersey mothers, many of whom have bravely spoken out about their experiences during pregnancy, labor and delivery. Their stories underscore just how frightening and dangerous childbirth can be, especially for mothers of color. I have written and spoken many times before about our disturbing statistics: a Black mother in New Jersey is over seven times more likely than a white mother to die of pregnancy-related complications. A Black baby is over three times more likely than a white baby to die before his or...
