A spokesperson describes the event as follows:
"Little Amal, whose name means “hope” in Arabic is a 12 foot puppet of a 10 year old Syrian refugee child whose journeys across many countries carry a message of hope for displaced people everywhere, especially children who have been separated from their families. She has traveled across 13 countries meeting more that a million people.
Her urgent message is simple: “Don’t forget about us.”
On September 28th, join Little Amal on her 6,000 mile journey across the United States in one of the largest free public festivals ever created to bring a message of compassion, empathy and hope."
