Newark’s history is rooted in advocating for the advancement of the people who reside in our city. We are committed to transforming our city’s historic Lincoln Park neighborhood into a self-sustaining hub of Black enterprise, arts, and culture through investing in workforce development, guaranteed basic-income, and physical restoration projects. Racial healing starts by investing in our people and shared resources and is sustained through policies and practices that respect the lived experience of the people in our communities.
