Our Chapters

No matter your location, Parents of Black Children(TM) is here to support you. We believe that in order to create a better education system for Black students, we need the support of Black parents, teachers, allies, and committed community members.

Our chapters provide regional oversight and administration of the activity of PoBC. They cascade information and resources to the local Parent Councils and are the point of escalation for parents requiring specialist support.
