What Is Parents Who Lead?
Our mission is to promote racial socialization strategies and techniques to help foster resiliency in families and the community. This will help children to develop a positive racial identity. Through this positive self-concept and racial identity, it is important for greater achievement and adaptive functioning for families. This in return, helps parents with culturally affirming parenting styles. The Parents Who Lead emphasizes education, mental health, connections, entrepreneurship, family ties, independence, moral and personal values, and respecting each other.
Why Is Parents Who Lead Important?
The Parents Who Lead is a group that focuses on connecting BIPOC families to resources in their community. We also focus on connecting children to children to increase social skills and development. As a mother, I have found that it is not that that resources don't exist in our community but it is the lack of accessibility and not knowing that certain services and programs exist.
