The New Jersey Families of Color Meetup Group was started in January 2012 to bring the moms, dads, and children of color of the northern New Jersey area together for support, socialization, and community. New Jersey can be a very transient place and this meetup group seeks to serve as a social connection for families of color, whether they plan to settle here permanently or are calling N.J. home only temporarily. The group has one sister chapter, the DMV Families of Color, which was started in January 2014. We welcome other families for play dates, group outings, Moms, Dads and family events, networking, support and fellowship. We truly believe that it "takes a village to raise a child". Come be a part of our little "village"!
Group membership fees are $20 per year, renewable every January. We use the dues to help cover a few of the larger meetups throughout the year such as the annual Summer Kick-off BBQ and assist with the maintenance of the group Meetup site. Dues may be paid through Paypal by using firstname.lastname@example.org as the payee. We also offer a 30 day trial membership to all new members.
