About us, but mostly about you:

WeekenderNJ is an independent community news media outlet, dedicated to making YOUR stories more visible and offering alternative fact-based articles about our community in an era of corporate controlled media. It is a new and strong platform for the voice of millions of everyday people who are fighting to survive in an America in crisis. It helps build authentic connections among neighbors with the goal of raising awareness that together we can create a better society and world.
We welcome text, visual stories, and artwork from those who are engaged in the struggle to build a new society that is truly of, by and for the people. 

We launched on Sunday, October 25th, 2020. Our first “edition” followed on November 1st, 2020. You will be able to read, hear, or see new material Sundays, and on occasions on other days when we have something particularly timely and important to share. We hope that you make us part of your regular reading routine.


The key messages we want to share are: 


  • We all make New Jersey together.

  • Listen to your stories/struggles.

  • Be the change you wish to see in the world.

  • Ask for help & lend a hand to your neighbors.

  • Feed your passions. 

  • Stay curious. 

  • Be creative.
