Working Families Need Summer Programming Now!


Join us in demanding that the City and School District of Philadelphia expands Summer Programming Opportunities  to make them accessible to working families.  The Committee of Immigrant Working Moms (El Comité de Madres Trabajadoras Inmigrantes) has surveyed and spoken to working families across South Philadelphia. Of 78 families in South Philadelphia,  88% of them were not able to enroll their children in a free summer camp. Almost all of these parents (89%) said that this had a negative effect on their family, ability to work, and/or finances. This lack of support in connecting our children to educational opportunities while we are at work – such as summer camps – threatens the economic stability and survival of our families. We need a response now! Sign our Petition Today!
