The Parents Committee for the New York City Urban Debate League

Our Mission

Parents4Debate was founded to support the mission of the Urban Debate League that ALL children should have the best debate education opportunities. The Parent Committee works to support this mission with meetings, supporting tournaments and debate events, feedback to improve the debate league, hosting special events, volunteering and more!  For additional questions please contact Director Erik Fogel,

Monthly Meetings

We meet each month most often on Saturdays at either Debate Tournaments (9:30am-10:30am) or the Office of the NYC Urban Debate League at 25 Broadway during Debate Center hours (12:00pm-1:00pm). Please subscribe to the newsletter to receive updates on meeting days and times.

Who We Are

The Parents Committee is open to all parents/guardians of students in the league, student alumni in the league, or if trying to bring debate to their school.  If you have any questions on joining, please contact Director Erik Fogel,
