Up the Block: a new resource for Philadelphians affected by gun violence

Having spent most of my teenage and young adult years living in Kensington, I understand what it feels like to be surrounded by regular shootings. For me, the worst thing about shootings is getting used to them; not even flinching when you hear a gunshot outside of your house. This project is so important to me because I know that it can make a difference in neighborhoods like my own. | From: Equally Informed Philly (Read more.)

Up the Block: un nuevo recurso para los habitantes de Filadelfia afectados por la violencia armada

Después de haber pasado la mayor parte de mi adolescencia viviendo en Kensington, entiendo lo que se siente al estar rodeado de tiroteos regulares. Para mí, lo peor de los tiroteos es acostumbrarme a ellos; ni siquiera reaccionar cuando escuchas un disparo fuera de tu casa. Este proyecto es tan importante para mí porque sé que puede marcar la diferencia en barrios como el mío. | From: Equally Informed Philly (Read more.)
