We have celebrated several historical firsts for black women making a difference at the local, state, and national levels.
- Honorable Lizette P. Parker (first black female mayor of Teaneck and first black female mayor in Bergen County),
- Honorable Leslie Rene Adams (Bergen County’s first black female municipal court judge),
- Honorable Bonnie Watson Coleman (first black female elected to represent New Jersey’s 12th congressional district), and
- Attorney General of the United States, Loretta E. Lynch (first black female and the second woman to be confirmed for the position).
The NCBW Bergen/Passaic Chapter proudly recognizes the accomplishments and achievements of these phenomenal women who are blazing trails. They are serving as amazing role models to let our young girls know that with determination, goal-setting, hard work, and an abiding faith - the sky is the limit!
NCBW Bergen/Passaic looks forward to your ongoing support as we continue to empower, enrich, and enhance the lives of black women and girls. We will focus on programs that target leadership development and gender equity in the areas of health, education, and economic empowerment in our communities.
