Phenomenal Moms is a parent lead, parent driven organization. Our goal is to move change forward with parent voice and parent power by creating spaces that are welcoming to all parents. We focus on helping parents within groups that are not traditionally active in the education advocacy space or civically engaged recognize their power and use their voice. These groups include Black, Latino, Immigrants, and parents who don’t speak English or who are learning English.
Phenomenal Moms was formed after we continually found ourselves in parent/community education meetings where the attendees did not reflect the demographics of the majority of the parents they were speaking for. They did not voice the concerns of parents and families who make up the majority of the school system (district, charter or parochial). Often these spaces were an unwelcoming atmosphere for parents who were different.
