Philly Children’s March… by the numbers


Roberta Frempong shared these statistics at our family gathering earlier this month.  Some impressive stats for just under 10 months of work (if anyone is handy with infograph-making.. you’re hired)!

We’ve had…

1 march as a “family contingent” in a large march
2 marches convened by the Philly Children’s March (January march & Baltimore solidarity march)
3 house meetings to discuss our stories around race & talking about race with children
7 special events (book talks, author events, community fair, gallery opening)
11 Mix & Match playdates (thank you Julie!)
62 Black Lives Matter/Philly Children’s March signs distributed
71 families who have joined in Philly Children’s March actions or activities
292 Facebook members

What do those numbers add up to?  A community of families who are learning to talk about race, build relationships, and work for racial justice.
