Protests continue around the nation following the lack of indictments for police officers involved in the death of unarmed African-American men. The latest gathering was reported in Philadelphia Saturday.

NBC Philadelphia reported that dozens of children and their parents gathered along City Avenue, a busy street in the city, to stage a die-in.

A second die-in was also scheduled for the King of Prussia Mall, which is about 20 miles from Center City, in the afternoon.

The community gathered to highlight the idea that talks about social injustices happen at an early age in African-American families.

A flier passed out at the morning protest read, "We have to begin to dialogue with our children at an early age about social injustices in our world. Today's primary goal is to show the world that our children's lives do matter."

The protest in Philadelphia involved the children lying on the ground as part of the die-in, and the parents stayed silently with their arms raised at about 9:30 a.m. More than 200 children were involved, along with their chaperones.

The die-in in the City of Brotherly Love is the latest in peaceful protests against the police-involved deaths of Eric Garner and Michael Brown.

Michael Brown was an unarmed 18-year-old who was shot and killed by Ferguson, Missouri, police officer Darren Wilson. The grand jury decided against an indictment in that case.

In the same week, the choking death of Eric Garner, an unarmed man in New York City, also saw no indictments against the officers, who were caught on tape trying to hold Garner down despite his pleading, "I can't breathe."

The motion Brown made before he was shot, raising his arms in surrender, and the final words of Garner have been used in all the protests to signify injustice.

Professional athletes have even worn shirts with "I can't breathe" printed on them to show their support.
