The Newark Think Tank on Poverty (NTTP) was founded in 2014. It is made up of community members in Newark and Licking County, Ohio, who have experienced barriers in obtaining work that provides a livable wage, safe housing, affordable healthcare, and accessible transportation.

We are building a movement to fight for justice on critical issues that have impacted our lives. We deeply care for our community, believe all should be treated fairly, and have the ability to live with dignity. We welcome allies from the broader community to join us in our efforts.

Watch our documentary Up River to learn more about our organization, and feel free to join us at an upcoming meeting.

You can reach out to us on Facebook, email (newarkthinktankonpoverty@gmail.com), or phone (614-281-3590).
