#BWNJ | Black Women New Jersey

New Jersey - Sisterhood by definition is:

1. the relationship between sisters. 2. an association, society, or community of women linked by a common interest, religion, or trade.

Sisterhood in fruition is BLACK WOMEN NEW JERSEY.

“Strength in Unity, Power in Connection”

It all started from a strong desire to be a part of an online community of black women ...

“for fun, for fellowship, for friends and for real and meaningful connections with other Black women in the state” - Shanique Taliaferro, BWNJ, Founder

The goal of the community is to shine a positive light on black women through events, community, culture and business support in NJ and beyond.

The ladies of BWNJ are truly #EpicIndeed;

The online community has 8k members;  Many rushed to the group after a BWNJ beach meetup in Long Branch, NJ went viral this past July; 100 Black Women - Melanin Activated ! I LOVE TO SEE IT !

The first event that I attended, “Bowling with a Purpose - Breast Cancer & Domestic Violence Awareness” was such a beautiful vibe and right on time for my birthday!

BWNJ hosted 3 Bowling events to connect women in North, Central and South Jersey.

Definitely a great way to bring in my new year - building with great people for a great cause.

As a DV survivor, the love shared on that evening was beyond necessary as is this monumental movement.

There’s never a dull moment in BWNJ Facebook group & WE MEAN BUSINESS!

The group offers free to low cost events virtually and in person, a business directory, networking opportunities, empowering community and good laughs constantly.

BWNJ North Jersey recently viewed an early screening of ‘THE COLOR PURPLE’ - 300 black women together making HerSTORY celebrating Black Excellence! #EpicIndeed ! BWNJ South Jersey is up next - I’m beyond excited!!!
