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.
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.
