Newark Trust for Education Foists Education Into the Election Cycle
The event was the first Trust-led policy foray this election cycle and continues the non-profit, independent, local education fund's efforts to foster community dialogue around public education and other factors that affect student performance.
The forum, A Vision for Newark's Children, drew nearly a capacity crowd of 600 at Science Park High School in the city's Central Ward. The two-hour discussion focused on key themes including public safety, safe routes to school, special education, and after-school programming, local district control as well as youth involvement in district policy discussions.

Rebuilding the Dream will advocate rebuilding the city civic infrastructure by strengthening its linkages, informing the citizenry, stakeholders and key leaders in New Jersey. The Leadership Newark Summit will offer an opportunity for new relationships among people who may not have previously viewed themselves as collaborators to join forces while inspiring, empowering, and informing those committed to Newark to engage in dialogue to identify problems and more importantly identify solutions through workshops, panel discussions, & keynote addresses. Ultimately, the goal of the summit is to connect resource seekers and resource givers - both tangible and intangible - and foster creation of a coalition or consortium of people, from a diverse group of backgrounds, and professions, who want to become part of an action oriented group that will stick together and support each other in making sure the ideas developed at the Summit become realities.
