Marcy DePina

Program Director, Newark Riverfront Revival

Marcy has always loved exploring Newark, so she found it troubling that she was not able to safely bring her son near the waterfront, even after the city’s collective 30 years of protesting the serious pollution, contamination, and dangerous activity. When she was made aware of the Program Director position for Newark Riverfront Revival, she gladly accepted the opportunity to contribute to her city and help revitalize its waterfront. Today, people are returning to the roots of this port city and becoming reacquainted with the river, thanks to Marcy and her partners’ efforts to beautify that space.
