Rise Up! Youth Speak!

Philly Children's March
Saturday, 11:15p.m. - 12:45p.m. -- Sellinger 005

Youth have been under-appreciated activists, but this is changing! As organizers make more space for families, youth have become more visible at rallies, protests, marches, and actions, and their powerful presence and actions speak loudly! We invite youth AGES 4-12 to share and explore ways they and other kids their age have been engaging in actions around Black Lives Matter, LGBTQIA Rights, Women’s Rights, Immigrant Rights, Fight for 15, and more. We will offer ideas for speaking up about the issues participants care about through toy protests, injustice cape-making, family banners, selfie posters, and chants- culminating in a child-led action at the end of the session.
