On Martin Luther King Jr. Day, POWER and other community groups are organizing the MLK Day of Action, Resistance & Empowerment March. #ReclaimMLK.
There will be a rally at 440 N. Broad St at 1:30pm and then marchers will leave from that location and march to Independence Mall, where a final rally will take place at 3:30pm. This march and rally in Philadelphia will just be one of the many marches happening around the country this coming weekend.
Here, in Philadelphia, organizers have set the following demands:
–We demand a full fair funding formula.
–We demand a democratically elected school board.
–We demand an end to stop and frisk.
–We demand an independent, fully empowered police review board.
–We demand a $15 hour citywide minimum wage.
–We demand the right to form unions.

If you’re interested in marching with other Old First members, please contact Hannah C. We’ll meet at 1:15pm at the corner of Broad St. and Spring Garden (by the BSL stop) and walk down together.
Don’t forget to make a sign! And wear something warm!
