Monday, June 8: Philly Defenders March for Black Lives

June 8, 2020 – 3:00 PM: 
Defenders March for Black Lives




On Monday, June 8 at 3:00 p.m., The Defender Association of Philadelphia is joining a nationwide coalition of public defenders who will be marching to protest the killings of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Tony McDade, and Ahmaud Arbery, and the systemic injustices faced by Black and Brown communities 




Here in Philly, our march will follow the tumultuous, painful journey too many of our clients endure when they encounter our justice system:
We will meet at the Constitution Center, 525 Arch Street at 3:00 p.m. From there, our march will proceed along the following route, making stops at:
  1. the Roundhouse at 8th and Race;
  2. ICE detention on North 8th Street;
  3. Federal Detention Center;
  4. Family Court; and 
  5. end at the CJC where we take a knee for 8 minutes 46 seconds
