What does PCM do?
The Philly Children's Movement knows that families and schools are critical spaces for building racially just communities. We envision a world in which all people are liberated, whole, and valued. We work to dismantle racism, anti-Blackness, and White supremacy. Our organizing for racial justice happens in schools, community events, child-centered activism, and racial justice campaigns.
