On October 26, a group of thought leaders and democracy supporters gathered in Newark at the New Jersey Performing Arts Center for a forum and conversation on “Re-igniting America’s Culture of Service.”
A compelling panel presentation and discussion including the Citizen Campaign’s new co-chairs Pamela Scott Johnson, Spelman College provost and Super Bowl Champion, Bart Oats, and dynamic educator, Diane Hill, assistant chancellor at Rutgers Newark.

Diane charted the explosive growth of Newark the Civic City and pointed out that Newark now has the potential to become a city of empowered citizens with training in Citizen Leadership and No Blame Problem Solving, not only at Rutgers University to its students but to its employees and the general public. Several corporations have joined in offering the training to their employees. The Newark School District will begin on February 1 to offer it again to all of their students.
This exciting growth of civic infrastructure in Newark is generating both a challenge and a model for other cities across the country.
