You don’t need special powers to make a difference — that’s the thinking behind ParentMap’s annual Superheroes issue. Every year, we honor cape-worthy community members who prove that making a change is within everyone’s power.
On this year’s list: a dancer who uses her personal history to educate tomorrow’s leaders; a skateboarder who’s rolling right over stereotypes; a teacher who empowers others to rethink what it means to be kind; and so many other notable locals who work hard to make our neighborhoods, our cities, our world better.
As you read on, we hope you draw energy and inspiration from these Superheroes and their stories (we know we do). If these stories remind us of anything, it’s that we all have the potential for positive change. Thank you, Superheroes!
