2016 Rally

Date: Monday August 15, 2016

Time: 6:00 pm

Start Location: Marconi Plaza (S 15th Street and Oregon Avenue) Philadelphia Pa 19148

End Location: City Hall

Show your support for the men and women of the Philadelphia Police Department, Pennsylvania State Police, SEPTA Police, and all Police Officers around the world.

Starting at 6pm we will gather on the west side of Marconi Plaza near South 15th Street at Oregon Avenue. We'll start the event by having a rally with food, drinks, activities, DJ, and surprise guests. We will then walk to City Hall on the east side of Broad Street while being escorted by Philadelphia Police Officers. As we walk on Broad Street, anyone that wishes to join us along the route is more than welcomed to do so. Those that do not wish to or can not walk with us are encouraged to set up small rally points on the sidewalk along the walking route. 

We are expecting to arrive at City Hall at approximately 8:30pm. While at City Hall we will be holding a brief memorial ceremony for the Philadelphia Police Officers which have died in the line of duty since 1980. We have been granted permission to use the City Hall apron for this event. 

After the rally at City Hall we will be taking the Broad Street Subway back to Oregon Avenue, and showing our support for SEPTA Police. If you joined us along the route we encourage you take the subway back to a station close to your starting point.  Please purchase your SEPTA tokens or TransPasses prior to the event.

T-shirts will be available for purchase soon. You are welcomed to wear anything blue and showing your support for law enforcement. Blue bows will also be available for $6. To place an order please call 267-243-9021

Please take photos along the way and tag @TOSPSB on all social media platforms. 

Weather: This is a rain or shine event. 

Thank you South Philly for showing our Police Officers how much we love them!

South Philadelphia's own singer and songwriter Denine Latanzo will open the event by singing the National Anthem. We will then walk to City Hall on the east side of Broad Street. We ask that everyone walking with us remain on the sidewalk and cross streets when legally permitted.  Our goal is to show support for law enforcement and not to impede law abiding citizens as they travel along Broad Street. As we walk along Broad Street, anyone that wishes to join us along the route is more than welcomed to do so. Those that do not wish to or can not walk with us are encouraged to set up small rally points on the sidewalk along the walking route.

After the rally at City Hall we will be taking the Broad Street Subway back to Oregon Avenue, and showing our support for SEPTA Police. If you joined us along the route we encourage you take the subway back to a station close to your starting point.  Please purchase your SEPTA tokens or TransPasses prior to the event.
