The Q at Parkside

(for those for whom the Parkside Q is their hometrain)

News and Nonsense from the Brooklyn neighborhood of Lefferts and environs, or more specifically a neighborhood once known as Melrose Park. Sometimes called Lefferts Gardens. Or Prospect-Lefferts Gardens. Or PLG. Or North Flatbush. Or Caledonia (west of Ocean). Or West Pigtown. Across From Park Slope. Under Crown Heights. Near Drummer's Grove. The Side of the Park With the McDonalds. Jackie Robinson Town. Home of Lefferts Manor. West Wingate. Near Kings County Hospital. Or if you're coming from the airport in taxi, maybe just Flatbush is best.

Civic Engagement Series: PLGNA on Urban Education Issues

Panel discussion featuring Anna Allanbrook, Natasha Capers, Myrah Brown Green, Richard Green, Monique Nieves

Moderated by Janet Paskin

Greenlight’s Civic Engagement Series hosts nonprofit groups working in social justice, community organizing, and the arts, with the goal of providing tools for community involvement and support to those doing necessary work in our culture. 20% of all book sales on the entire day of the event will be donated to the featured organization, and an option for direct donation will be available at the event. For January, Greenlight hosts a panel discussion and community forum hosted by the Prospect Lefferts Gardens Neighborhood Association on advocacy for education. The panel will explore tools to advocate for our schools and students, and how to support our communities through our schools.

Panelists include Monique Nieves, PTA President at PS 316; Natasha Capers of the Coalition for Educational Justice; Anna Allanbrook, Principal of Brooklyn New School; Dr. Myrah Brown Green, co-founder of the Crown Heights Youth Collective and principal of the Collective Fellowship & Peace Academy; and Richard Green, CEO and co-founder of the Crown Heights Youth Collective and professor at Medgar Evers College. The panel is moderated by Janet Paskin of Live Here, Learn Here, an organization that supports public schools in Central Brooklyn.
