About the JCWAB
Founded in 2022 with a motion passed by the Jersey CIty Council and signed off on by Mayor Steven Fulop, the Jersey City Women's Advisory board was the brain child of Jersey City Council President Joyce Watterman, and we thank her for her vision, wisdom & exemplary leadership. Her intention behind creating the Women’s Advisory Board is to provide women a seat at the table, where their voices, thoughts, and opinions are acknowledged. As we start our organization, we have solidified the foundation
.. and what do we mean by "a seat at the table"?
The table where City government laws and decisions are made that affect women
The table where government and private charities work to support and assist women
The table where businesses sponsor and contribute to local community efforts where women can benefit.
Hear our voices - Hear the voices of Jersey City's Women!
