The Truth, Racial Healing and Transformation Center at Rutgers University – Newark has collaborated with the Newark Public Library in Newark, NJ as part of the original TRHT proposal. The TRHT Centers at RU-N have designated their physical locations in 6 of the 7 library branch locations. They have held city-wide launch simultaneous in all locations including the John Cotton Dana Library located within RU-N. The center has hosted racial healing circles in the branch locations and will have demographic specific programming for each branch location in the city. As the Director of Public Engagement in SPAA, Sharon Stroye is responsible for creating synergistic activities between faculty and community-based agencies. Some of its community programming includes Public Lecture Series, Grant Writing workshops for non-profit organizations, and a resource for undergraduate and graduate student interns.
