Our community is facing an enormous public health crisis, the COVID 19 pandemic. In response to the crisis, we have created People, Pandemic, & Poverty - An NTTP Newsletter to make sure that ALL citizens can get needed information and perspective easily. The Newark Think Tank on Poverty wants to make sure that the system - its policies, resources, and decision making practices - serve ALL of our citizens equally. We work to educate the community about the issues we face, and we raise the voice of the working, poor and marginalized people so that we can move forward with needed changes.
We welcome your responses, suggestions and submissions. We are working to bring the community together - individuals, grassroots organizations, social service agencies, and forward looking government officials - to create a community that is just and fair, a community in which we can stay safe, stay informed, and stay connected!
