By Donald Gilpin, Town Topics, January 20, 2021

A group of local parents has initiated the Princeton Parents for Black Children (PPBC), a nonprofit organization to support and advocate for Black students in Princeton Public Schools (PPS).

Citing “unique challenges faced by Black students in Princeton Public Schools,” a January 14 press release from the organization stated, “The PPBC is the outgrowth of decades of advocacy by families and allies seeking to improve educational opportunities and conditions for Black children.”

Membership in the PPBC is open to all PPS parents and guardians of Black children. There are no fees to join. Adults interested in supporting the PPBC’s mission are encouraged to participate. Inquiries about membership and programming may be made by email at princetonpbc@gmail.com.
