Our Online Store

We have launched a branded line of clothing to support our efforts.  100% of net proceeds are used to offset costs associated with our efforts including legal and administrative expenses.  No salaries or other payments to individuals will ever be paid.

In the fall we will be adding additional items/colors.

About Us


The adverse effects of continued development and growth in Lakewood, NJ are being felt by every surrounding community, particularly in Toms River, Brick, Howell and Jackson.  Schools, infrastructure, municipal and school budgets, municipal, county and state resources are all being pushed to the breaking point.

Quality of life issues in the surrounding towns are arising on an almost daily basis.  The vast majority of these issues come about as a result of an unwillingness to abide by normal societal standards, standards that ALL residents are expected to adhere to regardless of race, creed, color, religion, disability or sexual identity.

We are organizing in an effort to stave off further quality of life erosion, return Ocean County to her majestic stature and to demand from our elected officials that ALL RESIDENTS comply with local, county, state and federal law . Lakewood in Jackson Lakewood in Brick Lakewood in Toms River
