Gun Violence Solutions

My office is working with several anti-violence organizations in Philadelphia and across the state to determine ways to reduce gun violence. Mayor Jim Kenney has asked members of the public to come up with solutions as well. Our solutions include: providing support for victims of crime to prevent victims potentially becoming perpetrators, supporting counseling and interventions at hospitals and emergency wards, providing funding for anger management and conflict intervention for at risk populations in schools and juvenile justice centers, and making illegal gun access more difficult.

We will work with Mayor Kenney to remedy high crime and gun violence in Philadelphia and across the Commonwealth. Follow me for more updates.

Happy Holidays

The holidays are a chance to reconnect with family and friends, create new memories, good food, and share love. To everyone who celebrates a holiday during this time of year, I want to wish you a happy celebration. Please follow safe practices when traveling and reach out to those in need. May this time bring hope for a deeper sense of community throughout the nation.
