A Friend of the Family

A Friend of the Family is a program of the Black Minds Matter Coalition (BMMC). This program is designed to provide the parents/guardians of Black children with support in navigating through educational issues. We have a network of educators who have extensive experience and/or research focused on Black children, youth, and adults in school. We can provide consultation on how to navigate through an issue you are facing or even direct support in advocacy efforts for your child. Please complete the following form if you have an educational issue that you would like guidance or support in. No issue is too small or too large. You are not alone, we are A Friend of the Family.
