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

We deeply care for our community and believe all should be treated fairly and have the ability to live with dignity. We are building a movement to fight for justice on critical issues that have impacted our lives.

Members of the Newark Think Tank on Poverty are committed to walking with one another on this journey. We also welcome allies from the broader community to join us in our efforts.

Watch our documentary "Up River" to learn more information about our organization and leaders, sign up here on our site for more information, and attend an upcoming meeting, or to begin following us on social media.
