Stand Against the "Proud Boys" in Philadelphia
Independence Visitor Center
Market and 6th
11 a.m. - 3 p.m., be sure to arrive early

From the organizers: "Far-right groups with ties to Neo-Nazis known as the 'Proud Boys' and the 'Three Percenters' are planning to attend a rally in Philadelphia on November 17th called 'We the People.' ... The residents and allies of Philadelphia must stand in opposition to this escalation of the far-right’s push into the city’s culture and politics. We are urging people recognize the seriousness and danger of this situation, and come out to oppose them on November 17th at Washington Square in Center City Philadelphia. There is safety in numbers, so to ensure the protection of vulnerable individuals and communities, it is imperative that as many people as possible show up in opposition. What to bring: Noise makers, signs, water, warm clothing and comfortable shoes, your friends and neighbors."
