The Temple University Coalition for Change was made to hold Temple accountable for their role in systemic racism and the colonization of North Philadelphia. Make your voice heard. If you cannot make our protest on July 8th but support our cause, please take part in this online petition. Additionally there is a phone/email zap script on our social media and it will be live streamed with an ASL interpreter.
