Don’t just stand there – take action!
As this summer of police brutality continues, so too is our moral imperative to demand sweeping changes in ourselves and our communities. Protesting is not just our right as citizens but it’s a potent tool against a power structure too corrupt and cowardly to self-correct.
Philly has been hopping with social justice demonstrations – with plenty of “good trouble” bubbling up from our little corner of NW Philly. From weekend marches to daily vigils, like the one in front of the Unitarian Society of Germantown (6511 Lincoln Drive).
All welcome to stand in solidarity with Black Lives Matter every weekday from 5 to 6pm! For more information, follow the event page on Facebook or go to Phillyprotest.com, where you can read more about this peaceful, family-friendly action (byo signs).
True Story: Phillyprotest.com is a fantastic resource for connecting with all kinds of meaningful, grassroots, non-violent events in our area. This streamlined site lists upcoming local actions chronologically, along with helpful info like time/location/organizer so you can literally find a movement at a glance (and then click for more information).
As we head into the final weeks before a critical election, it’s more important than ever to be seen and heard. NW Philly represent! Here’s pics from the Germantown protest “Invest in Communities Not Cops!” that marched this August from Germantown High School to Vernon Park, led by the Philly Black Radical Collective.
Calling all Allies and Social Justice warriors to join your neighbors in demanding a more fair and equitable community. Scroll down for details on the next local protest.
