HWM Cares

Our mission of Harlem World Magazine CARES (HWM Cares) is to recruit, empower, and mobilize our caring readers. Inspired by founder Danny Tisdale’s early work at the Children’s Harlem Zone (HCZ) in Harlem, NY.

Our Story

In 2010, we created Harlem Youth Publishing Empowerment (H.Y.P.E.), to create a nonprofit that recruits and trains the next generation of publishing in Harlem.

Created in partnership with Danny Tisdale and Research Assistant/Project Manager Nneka R. Ibekwe at Institute for Urban and Minority Education (IUME) at Teachers College at Columbia University. 

We found out that there was more need in Harlem than just recruiting and training the next generation of publishing, – like food, the arts, small business, health working with the Los Angeles Poverty Department (LAPD), and the health of the planet with Harlem’s Dr. Paul Falkowski in Harlem flood of 2100, politics working with electeds to solve problems and much more.

We look forward to working with our amazing HWM Partners to secure, heal and transform the lives of Harlemites by recruiting, empowering, and mobilizing our readers to help.
