“The New York Association of Black Psychologists has been a home for both my mind and spirit. The NYABPsi has allowed me to grow as a person and professional — nurtured by the roots, experiences, and aspirations of professionals that look like me. Through the NYABPsi, I have found camaraderie in a new city with colleagues who are committed to the advancement of peoples of the African diaspora, social justice in our communities, and enhanced focus of the Black experience in the field of Psychology.”
