PARENTS SUPPORTING PARENTS NY WELCOMES YOU
WE KEEP US SAFE
At Parents Supporting Parents NY, we’re raising funds and promoting initiatives to serve the people who need them most. Our Black Parents need to know we love and support them and their children. We believe in taking action with urgency in order to raise public awareness about some of the most pressing issues facing today’s society. More importantly our mission is to support and care for Black families. We buy laptops for Black children, we raise money through donations in hopes to support our Parents and children not just by advocating for Parents and children, but by also supplying mutual aid. We pride ourselves on being different then any other grassroots non-profit Organization. We believe for too long Black parents and children have never had the support they need from society. Here at PSPNY we do everything we can to improve the quality of life by fully supporting our parents in any and every way we can. Please join us by supporting our efforts to make a measurable difference in the lives of Black families with no apologies.
Parents Supporting Parents was born out of a pandemic to support and advocate for parents whose voices were not being heard.
Our grassroots organization has persevered to provide mutual aid to our members while providing laptops for Black and Brown children.
We realize with so much happening, that parents were not getting answers or support while asking the tough questions. We will not accept silence when it comes to remote learning, unemployment, rent forgiveness, food security and Permanent Housing for all New Yorkers As Black and Brown parents in the community we demand more. Since April 2020 we have worked with

Our mission is to speak up and support parents who may not think they have a voice and/or may not think they have the support and so forth to advocate for better education for our children, living wages, housing, and racial justice. We also fully support culturally responsive education and curriculum.
So far during COVID-19, we have offered financial support through donations to assist parents with the following
Laptops for Black and Brown children
Educational devices for children
Events and Rallies
Any mutual aid our budget allows us to afford.
We also provide emotional support with our weekly support group called Parent Talk to check in with our parents and make decisions as the Parent Committee of PSPNY. We are a grass roots non-profit organizations that runs on donations. Please consider donating today. Click Button Below
August 29th was our 1st laptop reunion. Sunday we celebrated the almost 400 Black and Brown students have gifted HP high quality laptops too. In partnership with our Fiscal sponsor Black Trans Nation NY and our sister organization Moms United for Black Lives we had an amazing event Sunday for the community of families we serve in Harlem at St Nicholas Park and 135th. With the help of sponsors like Fight For Our lives coalition, KRJ our next City councilmember for D9 Central Harlem, Urban Word NYC and Art in The Park we had an amazing event. There was a photo booth, art and craft tables, laser tag, bubbles, great food, DJ Mama Kim and a host of other great activities for the students including a back to school giveaway everyone left happy and loved. This isn't what community looks like we are simply a community. Please check out our fabulous event that will be featured on our website for the next week.
We would like to thank HP for their partnership. HP reached out to us and ever since we are proud to say they work with us to provide extra resources to continue buying and providing laptops to Black and Brown children to battle the digital divide that this pandemic has highlighted so clearly where no one can disagree. PSPNY will keep bringing digital equity to Black and Brown students one student at a time. We are a grassroots Organization that operates on donations. Please consider joining our community by donating to our organization so we can continue to provide and support or children and Parents. We also have PSPNY shirts for sale. Thank you.
