  • In anticipation of the planned March for our Lives on March 24, the Philadelphia Youth Commission and Mayor’s Millennial Advisory Committee are co-hosting a discussion seminar where young people in Philly can talk about the impact of gun violence in their lives, and also connect to solutions and resources in the city.
  • The event will start with an educational lecture, then break into smaller workshops to explore solutions. There will also be creative stations set up, so attendees can express themselves in artistic form.
  • All Philadelphia youth are invited to attend for free. Also welcome: parents, teachers, school administrators and elected officials at the federal, state and local levels.

Where: South Philadelphia High School at 2101 S. Broad St., 19108

When: March 22, 2018 from 4:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m.
