Summer Reading

Summer ReadingI am proud to announce that our Summer Reading Program is making a return for the fourth consecutive year. If your child is entering grades 1-3, there is still time to enroll your child in one of our programs at the following locations: F.S. Edmonds and John McCloskey Elementary Schools, or the following rec centers: Simons, Finley, Dorothy Emmanuel, Summer Fit Camp, Belfield, Pleasant Playground, and Lonnie Young.

We can prevent the ‘Summer Slide’. Watch the following video for more information on the impact literacy has during the summer months. Implementing summer reading will greatly prepare your children for life and keep them interested in learning.

Let’s keep our children motivated to learn in the summer months so they can be prepared for the next school year. Follow me for more information.

Summer Learning

Support Gun Violence Awareness Month All Year Round

Gun Violence AwarenessJune is Gun Violence Awareness Month, but our office is aware all year round. We have attended rallies and school walk-outs, and introduced legislation to take guns out of the hands of dangerous people.

On Monday, 4 June, I introduced a resolution that would declare 2 June as Gun Violence Awareness Day. We should recognize those who have been slain or injured by gun violence while fighting to change firearm laws. You can join us by attending rallies that promote the end of gun violence, or becoming a citizen advocate by joining an organization like Moms Demand Action. There is power in your voice and actions. Together we can put an end to gun violence.

Join Me for the Screening of Documentary Paycheck to Paycheck

In support of the Raise the Wage campaign, I am hosting a screening of the documentary “Paycheck to Paycheck: The Life and Times of Katrina Gilbert” Thursday, 14 June at 6:30 p.m. This documentary follows a single mother for a year in her quest to provide for her children despite the struggles of working in a low wage job. Space is limited, so please RSVP now to hold your spot. Click here to learn more.

We are showing the movie to raise awareness about the struggles of trying to survive with a low wage job. Our hope is that more will join the fight and call on their local elected officials in the legislature to support my proposed SB 1045 to raise the wage in Pennsylvania.

Why We Need to Raise the Wage

Dare to Care,
