Friends, neighbors, and supporters --

We invite you to a Community Walk down Taney Street this Sunday afternoon, starting at 1pm at North Taney and Ridge Ave.

The walk will move South on the 1800 block of Taney St. to the 1700 Block and finish at Cecil B. Moore Ave.

Volunteers will knock on doors, invite neighbors to join the walk, and share why it's so important to remove Roger Taney's name from a place of honor and replace it with someone we can be proud of, Caroline LeCount, "Philadelphia's Rosa Parks," who the street's residents voted to honor instead.

We are seeking petition signatures up and down Taney Street, so please sign the petition and invite your neighbors!

We will be joined by special guest ‘Philly Elmo’ aka Positive Movement Entertainment, for an unforgettable performance!
