Rutgers University-Newark

The CDF project at Rutgers University-Newark is indebted to the long history of community activism present in the city of Newark. The team will continue to build on this rich local history by coordinating resources both on campus and in the broader Newark community to research local history of racial harms and craft methods of repair. The team will work in collaboration with two community-based organizations, the New Jersey Institute for Social Justice and the Newark Community Development Network, to co-create facilitated community discussions. These community dialogues, alongside the research conducted by scholars and students at RU-N, will form the basis of proposed reparative solutions in Newark.
