This article reports on findings from a community-based participatory action research (CBPAR) project—the Parent Mentor Program—in a racially and economically diverse small city in Central New York. The project uses a race- and class-conscious framework to understand barriers to the involvement of parents of color and to reframe parents’ role in the school system as advocates whose primary purpose is to bridge cultural disconnects between white teachers and students of color.
