Connecting the Community for the Next Generation
The Bexley Minority Parent Alliance (BMPA) was established in the summer of 2015 by Bexley families with children of all ages, with the intention of building community among minority families and district staff, and with the added hope of affecting positive change in our district. Today, we are an alliance of caregivers, educators, professionals, and allies, working to empower and celebrate our students, close opportunity gaps in our district, and provide learning and engagement opportunities in our community.
One of those community opportunities is the Bexley Cherry Trees Planting Project, led by the BMPA Cherry Trees Planting Committee and in partnership with the City of Bexley.
This includes #BexleySakura8 bracelets, made by Bexley native, jewelry maker, and friend of the BMPA, Stacy Grossman, for the Cherry Trees Planting Project. “Sakura” means “cherry blossoms” in Japanese. The eight rose quartz beads on each bracelet symbolize hate crime victims in Atlanta. Stacy’s other works can be found on her Facebook page, “The Creative Commons.”
