Family Contingent: MLK D.A.R.E. March

On January 19, 2015, thousands of people took to the streets of Philadelphia to “reclaim Martin Luther King Day.” While MLK Day has, since its inception, been a “day of service,” founds of the MLK march this year wanted to return to the roots of King as change-agent.


With one small neighborhood march under our belts and the support of the Philly Childcare Collective, our group marched as part of a “family contingent” in the MLK D.A.R.E. march.


So as thousands swept down Broad Street, we worked to create our own “crowd bubble” with red balloons and families looking out for each other.
