Kelly Outing

Kelly Velicia Outing is a Newark-born and bred social rights advocate. They were raised by parents with a long legacy in Newark, as social education activists. Their journey as a social rights advocate started at the ripe age of 16, marching with the likes of Reverand Al. Sharpton and Jesse Jackson to the MLK monument in Washington D.C. While attending American History High School, Kelly helped lead a march on the City Hall steps to fight the defunding of their school and the marginalization of their fellow students. They continued their formative years under the mentorship of Newark’s first Black woman council president, Mildred. C. Crump, as an intern for 2 years. Kelly then attended Seton Hall University, where they studied Communications and Public Relations. In 2015, they made their first career shift, working on financial equity for entrepreneurs and small business owners as the community manager of =SPACE. There, they worked tirelessly to provide resources and opportunities for multicultural founders, LGBTQ+ ventures, and women-led startups. In 2017, they re-founded Newark Tech Week, alongside the founder of =SPACE, Citi Medina. And in 2021, became the co-creator of Newark Small Business Week.
