Civil rights leader Reverend Al Sharpton joined national labor leaders to focus on theVineland Developmental Center which is slated for closure. Governor Christie’s proposed budget calls for saving 1.6 million dollars by closing the developmental center which is home for more than 300 women.  Sharpton and union leaders say the closure is part of a conservative agenda that is taking root across the country.
