Empower Our Neighborhoods

Jessica Lipman assisted Richard Miller with the technical aspects of the class, working more hands on with the students. During one of my interviews with Jessica she noticed my desire to get involved with the community, and to help people. She recommended I get involved with a local community group, Empower Our Neighborhoods, (EON).

After following them around for a few weeks I noticed how hard this group of people were working for something they loved. The group is comprised of long-time residents of New Brunswick, business owners, and students from Rutgers University. One of the group leaders, Charlie Kratovil, was an inspiration and taught me about the history of New Brunswick. I made my first video during this time…

Community organizations from across New Jersey collaborate with EON. The group is active in the community and continues to empower the neighborhoods of New Brunswick.
