FEEDING OUR COMMUNITIES

The energy was amazing and families were eager to get their children the technology which they deserve. Ms. Grant's team of PSP members and allies were there for support, help, and logistics.  This is what community looks like! More photos are below.

2ND ANNIVERSARY & 20TH LAPTOP GIVEAWAY

For twenty consecutive months, Parents Supporting Parents has given away high-quality laptops to Black and Brown youth in New York City.

 

In July 2022, we are celebrating this milestone at Marcus Garvey Park in Harlem with snow cones, cotton candy, arts & crafts, a bouncy house, trays of free hot food, t-shirts, and much more!

 

This is what a community looks like!

PARENTS POWER HOUR

powerhour

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.

AFRICAN AMERICAN DAY PARADE 2022

African

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.

With our organization’s mission always in mind, we strive to find new strategies for dealing with this challenge. Feeding our community is something that we take very seriously, and our team is working each day to make a positive impact. Contact us to learn more about our commitment to this cause.

UPTOWN BLOCK PARTY

Four decades later, on July 29th, 2023

PSP and MU4BLNYC hosted THE UPTOWN BLOCK PARTY

in the Uptown Harlem area.

The event was incredible! There were games, arts and crafts tables, a 360 photo booth, cotton candy, a huge water slide, a bouncy house for the children, and amazing raffle giveaways

 

Plenty of great homemade and grilled food was cooked by

community members.

 

PSP 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 a hundred 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 an amazing and joyous event.

CORSI-ROSENTHAL BOX BUILD

corsi

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.

PSP COLLABORATING

The CB12

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. Parents Supporting Parents felt that was in line with our mission. You can read more about it here.
