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)!
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.
