Walk to help stop gun violence
Over the weekend, I attended a day-long community forum (there will be more on that later) that was in part focused on what has to change in Philadelphia in order for it to become the great city we know it can be. One of the things that came up in several of the groups in which I participated was the need to do something about the current rate of murders.
If this is also something that concerns you (and if it doesn’t have you worried, you might want to check your pulse) there’s a walk and rally, led by survivors of gun violence, that you can attend tomorrow (October 16th) from 12 noon until 1:30 pm. The walk begins at noon at Magee Rehab Hospital (16th and Race) and goes to the State Building at Broad and Spring Garden Streets.
