Donations are now Tax Exempt . We have secured a fiscal sponsor and receipts can be furnished upon request.
We hit our goal of $25,000 raised over the course of the last year and a half. I increased the goal to $35,000 to continue our fundraising efforts. We have give out over 500 filters and over 4,500 gallons of water. This has been an amazing and changeling journey to say the least.
Hi My Name is Anthony Diaz and I am one of the co founders of the Newark Water Coalition is an advocacy group that has declared the Newark water contamination crisis a public health emergency. The coalition is working together to inform and educate the residents and other consumers about the dangers and ailments that are associated with the contaminates in the water. The coalition is calling on our government stakeholders, healthcare providers, faith and community-based organizations to make this public health crisis a priority, allocate the adequate funding to fix our infrastructure, test our people and provide clean water for all!
The coalition started in December of 2018 and has put on various events in the community. The NWC has done teach ins to offer a different narrative than what is coming out of the city of Newark. Our main purpose is to educate the residents and mobilize them into organizing their communities to demand CLEAN WATER FOR NEWARK! Our government has failed us and it is up to the residents to hold them accountable!
The NWC is using funds collected here to purchase water filters and to handle operational expenses.
