2018

in 2018 year Black Lives Matter Philly remembered Aiyana in front of City Hall. We had speakers and poetry and again mourned together the loss of Aiyana's childhood and the woman she would have become by remembering children and women slain by the state. We called the names of Black girls and boys, and Black cis and trans women. We also hosted a Social Media Contest and a Lesson Plan that was used in schools around the city.

2017

This year Black Lives Matter Philly held space on the steps of the Art Museum honoring the loss of Aiyana's childhood and the woman she would have become by remembering children and women slain by the state. We called the names of 254 Black girls and boys, and cis and trans women.

Years Past

People across the country who were traumatized by the senseless death of young Aiyana have honored her in their way. Here are a few images we found.
