PfP condemns vandalizing playgrounds anywhere

Playgrounds for Palestine condemns the vandalizing of a playground dedicated to the memory of Grace McDonnell, a 7-year old victim of the Shady Hook School massacre.

Playgrounds are places of joy, refuge, and growth for children, the most vulnerable and innocent segment of any society. As an organization that serves traumatized children living under a brutal military occupation, we are particularly aware of what it means to violate the safe spaces of children.

Our solidarity and prayers are with the family, friends, and community of little Grace McDonnell.

Thank You!

PfP’s 2018 annual gala was fabulous.  Thank you to all of our patrons, volunteers, honored guests, UPenn facility staff, and Manakeesh (caterer), who made the evening what it was.

“After the ‘Cast lead’ attack on Gaza, PfP shared a video of the kids finally able to go outside where there still stood a (PfP) playground.  It still brings tears to think about the joy of those kids swarming the playground…  It really brought home the great work PfP does. “
