Spearheaded by ACTION United, about 15o parents, students and educators rallied at Peirce School, 22nd and Cambria, and then marched to Dobbins to join with others in protest of the School Closure plan. Councilwoman Cindy Bass spoke at the rally, endorsing the PCAPS call for a moratorium on school closings. Speaker after and speaker at both this rally and at the Dobbins meeting underlined the disproportionate impact these closures will have on North Philadelphia and low income, people of color.
At Dobbins People refused be separated into two meetings or listen to power point presentation by Dr. Hite. They insisted they be heard.
