Empowered Parents in Community
Empowered Parents in Community (EPiC) is a non-profit, 501c3, that aims to cultivate parent leadership and improve family engagement to better support students’ educational needs. Our mission is to dismantle systemic racial inequities in education. We coalesce to advocate for high quality educational opportunities and equitable distribution of resources. We do this by intentionally engaging Black parents and empowering them through collective organization to advocate for accountability at all levels to close the educational opportunity gap. We came to life in one school and in one short year have grown to have parent leaders in one third of Durham Public Schools.Visit The Website
