Stronger Together Essex

In 2014, the Network released the statewide Stronger Together report, which documented two and a half decades of the work of our member organizations. Through the generous support of the Citi Foundation, we were able to produce county level reports including an Essex County Stronger Together report.

The results of the Essex report were unveiled at a joint event with Union County officials and community leaders in Newark on September 29th. Helping us to unveil Essex's economic impact was the Honorable Ras J. Baraka, mayor of the City of Newark, Assemblywoman Sheila Oliver (D-Essex/Passaic) and New Community Corporation Chief Executive Officer Richard Rohrman.
