EPiC is a well-respected, purposeful, Durham-based non-profit parent empowerment and advocacy organization. EPiC provides resources and tools to help parents, educators and others create better schools. Our tools bridge school and home for students by empowered Black parents and their allies to close the opportunity gap.
- Our Circles of Hope are support groups for parents/caregivers that focus on parent wellness, stress management, and navigating the educational system.
- Our Listening Sessions are a place where we gather community members together to hear about their lived experiences as it relates to education and systemic inequities.
- Our Community Forums with educators, parents and students bring those with lived experience together to offer parent-led solutions that address data driven inequities found within a school or school system.
- Our Collectives are groups of parents/caregivers who focus on a specific advocacy issue. EPiC holds space to pull parents together with the same areas of interest to close the opportunity gap and work toward advocacy together
EPiC creates a safe space to collectively navigate, disrupt, dismantle and rebuild a better education system together.
