On November 26th, the Newark Think Tank on Poverty launched its first publication, Justice. With a focus on bringing the stories of wealth and income inequality that go unmentioned in large media outlets, we hope to start a political dialog and movement that is inclusive of all peoples, including those forgotten by our City on the basis of their financial position.
We will be releasing paper issues of Justice monthly. Paper copies of the publication can be found at our General Meeting. We will have enough copies on hand for members to distribute to their friends, families, and co-workers. We are currently looking for partners in the community who would like to distribute copies to people within their networks.
The digital version of Justice is this blog. We will be posting stories, essays, and more between print issues as they are completed. If you are interested in volunteering your time to write on contemporary politics in Licking County, or, if you have stories, information, and/or research that you'd like to share with a wider audience, submit them here.
Currently, NTTP is campaigning for accessible, affordable treatment for all peoples suffering from a drug addiction, and raising awareness of the methamphetamine epidemic, which by several measures is growing under the radar of media and politicians. Writing concerned with the campaign or its mission will be moved to the front of the line.
Thanks for reading, writing, and sharing,
The Justice Editorial Board
