At the end of the year, many folks begin to turn towards the next year and begin setting resolutions for the upcoming year. But before doing that, we invite you to celebrate. A few of our friends on social media posted the invitation below, inviting folks to celebrate.

SO HERE ARE THE TOP 5 THINGS THAT PARENTING FOR LIBERATION IS CELEBRATING FOR 2018!

We are so proud that our founder, Trina Greene Brown was a recipient of CADRE’s Inspiration Parent Award, for having a courageous vision of healing and transforming Black parents’ struggles into liberated collective Black parent power. Click here to watch her acceptance speech.
We facilitated 8 workshops reaching over 150 parents across cities such as Chicago (in partnership with A Long Walk Home , Los Angeles (National Sexual Assault Conference), San Francisco (CPEDV conference), and Oakland (Powerful Parent conference)–the most impactful workshop for 2018 was with 40 incarcerated parents. Read more about that workshop and listen to a podcast here.
We produced 10 new podcasts which have reached over 7,000 listeners! Happy to announce that our podcast is now streaming on iTunesSpotify, and SoundCloud  for more reach.
We are now officially fiscally sponsored by Social Good Fund. We were honored (and did a little happy dance) when we received our first donation on Giving Tuesday. In case you didn’t know, we can now receive tax-deductible donations, so please contribute by clicking here.
We were honored to receive a three year seed grant from the NoVo Foundation to build infrastructure to ensure the long-term sustainability of the project, evaluate and expand Parenting for Liberation’s current project offerings (blog, podcast, workbook, workshops, and more), and deepen the work and seed new experiments for our next phase.

THANK YOU FOR A GREAT YEAR & LOOKING AHEAD TO 2019!

Thank you for celebrating and rocking with us in 2018! None of this would have been possible without the liberated parents out there who are listening to podcasts, liking and sharing our social media post, reaching out via email, attending our workshops, and reading our e-blasts.

We look forward to continue deepening and spreading liberated parenting practices in 2019! Here is what we will be up to early 2019:

  • Hosting an Advisory Circle in March in SoCal
  • “Ain’t I A Mama?” piece featured in two anthologiesChicana M(other)work (March 2019) and Maternal Activisms (August 2019).
  • Increasing our capacity by recruting volunteers! If you have a few hours per week to invest in Black parents, children, and families, please sign up to be a much needed volunteer! http://www.parentingforliberation.org/volunteer

Until we (re)connect in 2019,

let’s continue to love, support, & celebrate one another,
