Beloved Care's 2nd Annual March Puts Youth at the Center Against Gun Violence

On April 2, Beloved Care hosted its 2nd Annual Youth-led March and Rally Against Gun Violence alongside Imani Star, Forget Me Knot, and others. It ran from 23rd & Market Streets to Philadelphia's Municipal Services Building on 15th Street & JFK Blvd., where youth took the lead against the city's gun violence epidemic primarily affecting them.

AL DIA spoke to several youth leaders at the rally to relay the importance of having youth lead a march and rally versus adults who, from what some youth said, "don't listen to them" anyways. They wanted their voices to be heard by their peers because they can "relate to them" and felt the need to step up because elected officials aren't "doing anything about it."
