Today over 200 parents and 100 children attended a conference at Columbus Elementary School where they were greeted by Dr. Yigal Joseph. The keynote welcome was provided by Martha Lopez, former Hispanic Outreach Director for Westchester County. Her eloquent welcome was appreciated by many of the parents. This conference provided parents with an opportunity to obtain information and leadership skills that will enable them to better navigate our schools and the various city & state entities. Issues such as parenting, voting & immigration were discussed in small groups.
The organizers would like to thank Kelly Johnson from the City’s Youth Bureau for facilitating this event. Thank you and we hope we can do this again.
