This year in our home city of Philadelphia, Dreamline is partnering with Global Citizen, a local community service organizer. Dreamline has been selected as the Feature Service Project for Global Citizen’s King Day Event on January 21, 2019 with an expected attendance of 5,000 people who come to serve and honor the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
The theme of the event this year is A World Without Gun Violence. Hundreds of volunteers will be creating Dreamline banners with their dreams of a world without gun violence. They will also be creating portable, free-standing Dreamline exhibition structures called Dream Booths, each one displaying 50 Dreamline banners with dreams on one side and values on the other. Each Dreamline Booth will also contain a shelf on which a box, memorializing a individual who died of gun violence recently, will rest.
These will be packed up at the end of the event and sent to sites around the city where they will be on display for the next few months. If your school or group is in the Philadelphia region and you would like to be considered as a host site for a World Without Gun Violence Dream Booth, click here for more information and the signup form. If you’d like to volunteer for Dreamline at the event, click here. (Select “helping in other ways” on the form. )
We’ll keep you posted on how it goes. This kind of program could be done anywhere with Dreamline banners!
