Children & Young adult's Parade for Positive Change! ANN ARBOR

Date: 
Sat, Apr 29, 2017 - 3:00pm to 6:00pm

City:

THIS IS A PEACEFUL, NON-POLITICAL, SAFE outlet for children, we encourage them to HONOR and be PROUD of their heritage, lifestyle, and religion through their signs and banners!

I think too many of us take for granted the power that our children possess. They see the news with us, they see our protests. They should know, as American Citizens (legal or otherwise), that they CAN make a change too! This is a great outlet for them to feel POWERFUL and INCLUDED... Safely and Peacefully.
