What We Do
The Newark Water Coalition is an advocacy group that has declared the Newark water contamination crisis a Public Health Emergency.
We are working together to inform and educate the residents and other consumers about the dangers and ailments that are associated with the contaminants in the water.
We call on our government stakeholders, healthcare providers, faith and community-based organizations to make this public health crisis a priority, allocate adequate funding to fix our infrastructure and Clean Water now!!!
