I love this city, this state
but this country is too large
and whoever’s in charge up there
had better take the elevator down
and put more than change in our cup
or else we
are coming
UP

BYMC’s Elizabeth Thomas and Chevon Drew on The Rest is Noise, on East Village Radio .com Today at 12pm ET

There are many programs that aim to help the babies of disadvantaged young mothers, but few that focus on supporting a mother directly, so that she can take care of herself and her baby better. That’s what The Brooklyn Young Mothers’ Collective does by providing disadvantaged young mothers with a comprehensive set of services focused on their educational attainment and social development to help them to become self-sufficient adults.
 
 
This Wednesday December 28, the BYMC will host a charity dance party at NYC’s le poisson rouge beginning at 10pm ET. The event features DJs Rich Medina and Akalepse with special guests DJ Evil Dee and Lord Finesse for a dance party benefiting The Brooklyn Young Mothers Collective. More info can be found here, or listen live to The Rest is Noise, Wednesday at 12pm ET, when Elizabeth Thomas from the foundation and event organizer Chevon Drew will be live in studio to talk about their efforts.

 

The holiday season is fully upon us at this point. All that partying and family time is well and good, but let’s not lose sight of those out there in need of our help.

(December 28th), you can kill a few birds with one stone, bring yo auntie and ‘em and dance for a good cause at the Get Down 2 Give Back event presented by Chevon Media & Props and featuring Rich Medina, DJ Evil Dee, Lord Finesse, and DJ Akalepse. A portion of the proceeds will be benefiting the The Brooklyn Young Mothers Collective:

“At BYMC, we empower teen mothers to break the cycle of poverty. We begin to work with teenagers who are pregnant or parenting their first child and continue until the child is at least 2 years old.

We invest in the community. We train young mothers to be their own best advocates.” It all goes down at Le Poisson Rouge (158 Bleecker Street) from 10pm-4am (tix here).
