The Newark Water Coalition started in December of 2018 in response to widespread lead contamination in their community. NWC is now working to inform and educate the residents and other consumers about the dangers and ailments that are associated with the contaminants in Newark’s water. NWC is mobilizing and organizing their communities to demand clean water.
The arrival of Covid-19 made access to clean water even more difficult for the NWC and residents of Newark. Quarantine orders shut down travel in some parts of the city. The amount of water that can be purchased at one time has been restricted, and many residents do not have the capacity to transport purchased water or the money to afford it.
Our first Water Box in Newark was delivered to NWC in August of 2020. With the Water Box, NWC can distribute far more water to their community and shift resources away from collecting water donations and towards community outreach and advocacy.
