MOTHER RAISES MONEY TO BUY LAPTOPS FOR STUDENTS LEFT BEHIND BY REMOTE LEARNING

CBS Evening News

The best way to keep our children and parents healthy right now is for DOE to finally center our Black and Brown children. Due to COVID-19 and Delta.   We stand with parents now like we did last September when we started raising money to buy our children what the DOE refused to and that's great technology HP LAPTOPS  that belongs to them. They can stay home and be safe and not worry about getting a loved one sick. At the same time, we also know some children must be in a school setting to progress. We demand the DOE center our children who learn differently and our children who have sensory issues and will not keep a mask on their face like our CEO Grandson.  This is a health issue and Parents should be the ones deciding for their children. It is beyond a health hazard for our children well-being and health to be decided by the Mayor of NYC and the chancellor of the DOE.

OUR CEO IS NY1'S NEW YORKER OF THE WEEK!

"She wasn’t just giving the young students a free laptop, but the chance to get on an even playing field with some of their other peers. Grant, a mother herself, has always been involved in the fight against inequality in the classroom. She says for too long children of color have been left behind."

UPTOWN BLOCK PARTY

July 2023

There has not been a block party in this area of Uptown for more than 4 decades.

PSPNY/MU4BLNYC changed that on July 29th, 2023.  We had an incredible event! There were games, arts and crafts tables, a 360 photo booth, cotton candy, a huge water slide, and a bouncy house for the children.  Plenty of great homemade food and grilled food were cooked by community members.

 

We had wonderful raffle giveaways and worked with CBOs (Community-based Organizations) including Corbin Hill, AQE, Black Voices Matter, and Word Up Bookstore to bring resources and education to the community.  This event was supported by Council Member Carmen De La Rosa.  We gave a laptop to an innocent former incarcerated Black man.  We gave away 100 book bags with school supplies to students in our community. It was an amazing day! 

 

Thank you to all our donors and volunteers who helped make this a great wonderful event.

ACTIVITIES

Bringing Change

Parents Supporting Parents NYC inc is achieving more with our initiatives than ever before. We work on many exciting projects to help improve the lives of others and are very proud of the progress we continue to make. Learn more about what we do, who we help, and how we work every day to promote positive change.

CORSI-ROSENTHAL BOX BUILD

We are building Corsi-Rosenthal Boxes for our communities, while the DOE Chancellor and Mayor waste MILLIONS on air filters that don't work.

 

We are taking matters into our own hands to fight environmental racism and the spread of COVID-19 in our public schools.     

MERV13 furnace filters and a box fan are an easy and cost-effective way to help clear indoor air from airborne virus particles.

PARENT POWER HOUR

In September 2021 our CEO Tanesha Grant launched Parent Power Hour, a virtual space where parents could support one another regarding their dealings with the NYC Board of Education. Specifically, the NYCDOE's continued gaslighting of parents who needed a remote option because the schools were simply not safe due to the lack of protections. 

Since then it has become a liberating space for especially Black and Brown parents and has featured many great speakers including two former female Black Panthers and a candidate running for office.

NYC SPEAKS

With our organization’s mission always in mind, PSPNY members have canvassed in both Manhattan and Brooklyn to bring the groundbreaking NYC Speaks survey to Black and Brown communities to make sure they have this critical input. 

The NYC Speaks survey wanted to "hear from New Yorkers typically excluded from decision-making: Black and brown, low-income, immigrant, youth, NYCHA and disabled communities." So we felt that was in line with our mission. You can read more about it here.

AFRICAN AMERICAN DAY PARADE 2022

We participated in the African American Day Parade this year with Councilwoman Kristen Richardson Jordan.

One year after the Civil Rights Act was passed, the African American Day Parade was formed as a way to promote unity, dignity, and pride among African Americans. The Grambling State University Marching Band opened our first parade as we celebrated our first Grand Marshals Adam Clayton Powell Jr. and Shirley Chisholm.
