Welcome to BYLP Where we are
MOVING FORWARD WITH INFLUENCE
While it seems like things are getting back to somewhat like normal we encourage everyone to remain vigilant in continuing to take care of themselves. Do not let up, as there are still viruses like racism and COVID-19's Delta variant that are tearing apart our families and communities.
We have seen a consistent uptick in the amount of aggression demonstrated on campuses. We continue to work with families to support them as they navigate the education system. In most cases we have been able to find a workable solution in 48 hours or less. In other cases we remain steadfast in advocating for the fair treatment of our children by adults who should show more compassion after the year we have all been through. BYLP is committed to supporting the various needs of Black children and their families. If you need us, call or email us. We promise to answer.
