I have been trying to find a social/networking or culture/support group for parents of inter-racial children. I have a 13 year old daughter who is bi-racial. We live in a community that is not as culturally diverse as I would like and am hoping to find a positive outlet to give her some exposure to other cultures. If you are part of a group, know of a group or have any suggestions for me, please share. Im up for anything. There truly does not seem to be much positive resources for African American children in MN.

What can I do next?

So What Happened?

Thank you all for your great responses and support! I had previously checked out and did not have much success but decided to try once more and actually put out a request on their site today. I also checked out the website for African American Family Services and left a voicemail for someone there asking if they knew of anyone or anything that would help. Hopefully I will hear something back from them next week. I also checked out which seems to be a cross between and I posted a question on their site as well but have not heard anything as of yet. There seems to be a much bigger following/community of moms on this site but I havent ruled out just yet. I have yet to look into Harambee Village but plan to do that tomorrow. I am running out of time for anything today. Where does the time go? Oooooh the life of a working paretn, gotta love it!

Again, thank you all for your support and advice. I will let you all know what happens with the leads you have given me. If nothing turns up I might just have to start something of my own.

I hope you are all having a great week and even better weekend. Talk to you soon!

I would agree that Harambee Village is a great start. They could probably also give you some other good recommendations.

I feel you pain! I have two adopted children and one is African American and Native American. We are struggling too to include her in her cultures and there is not a lot. Is your daughter adopted? There are a few more resources for adopted transracial families. Harambee Villages are for adopted African American Chidlren and I attend a great ECFE (Early Childhood Family Education) for adopted families in St. Paul. Also, have you looked into the non-profits in Mpls such as African American Family Services? Good luck and feel free to contact me for more help or if you have any resources for me, H.
