Our children don’t get to vote, but they do have a voice—and they want and need to use it. This march is an opportunity for all of our children to choose the issues they care about, and to learn to stand up and speak out—on their own terms and in their own words. Let’s get our children together and let them lead a celebration of independent thought, community, inclusivity, and their future.Peter Rabbit, A Children’s Opera by New Camerata Opera, Central Library, Prospect Heights
