Advocates for Children of New York
Advocates for Children of New York
Since 1971, Advocates for Children has been speaking out for the children and youth who are most likely to experience failure or discrimination in school because of their poverty, race, disability, language barriers, homelessness, or involvement in the foster care or juvenile justice systems. No other city-wide organization is like AFC: working in the trenches to provide these vulnerable students and their families with urgently needed guidance and advocacy, while at the same time, pressing for systemic reforms that benefit all students even those who are most challenging to educate. AFC’s efforts on the individual and policy levels inform and strengthen each other, further increasing our effectiveness in the communities we serve.

Thank you for coming out on November 3rd for our Celebration of Friends Past and Present and for helping AFC continue to protect every New York City student’s right to learn.

The Maple Street School
The Maple Street School
We are a parent cooperative preschool that emphasizes nurturing, play, and hands-on learning. We also emphasize parent involvement, connection to the community, and a cooperative spirit.
In our classrooms, we value each child as unique and growing. Play is central to our progressive philosophy of education and, as such, is an important part of the curriculum.
At Maple Street School, families and teachers together provide a rich, nurturing, creative, first school experience and foster a lifelong love of learning for children.

DJ Spinna
DJ Spinna
DJ Spinna is something of an anomaly in music. A humbling example of what it takes to truly succeed within the framework of multiple fields. A steadfast work ethic, an obsessively extensive vinyl library and the willingness to pursue the full extents of his roots (Funk, Soul and Jazz), foundation (Hip-Hop) and future (Electronic/Dance music) with no restraints. A cornerstone of Hip-Hop's late 90's indie-uprise, DJ Spinna made much of his first impression on listeners as the musical background of his group The Jigmastas (having released an impressive slew of 12" singles on his then self-run label Beyond Real during this time) as well as providing the canvas for an array of that era's lyrical giants. As an emcee in New York City, if you didn't have a Spinna production under your belt, well, you just hadn't accomplished all there was to accomplish. Everyone from Mos Def, Talib Kweli to Pharaohe Monch boasted Spinna beats to prove their worth to the scene.
