Philly youth to march against gun violence on Sunday


A youth-led march through Center City to protest against gun violence is planned for Sunday, followed by a rally outside the Municipal Services Building. It takes place less than a week after a 15-year-old was fatally shot on his way to school, the sixth child killed in Philadelphia this year. As of March 28, 37 kids have been shot this year.


The march starts at 23rd and Market Streets at 12:30 p.m. and proceeds east on Market, ending at the Municipal Services Building at 2 p.m. after circling City Hall.


Event organizer Khalif Mujahid Ali anticipates 200 youths to attend along with representatives from youth services organizations. The kids expected to march participate in programs offered by Ali’s own Beloved Care Project, Forget Me Knot, Imani Star Development, and programs based in Camden and Washington.
