Bullock hosts two events on the safety of 195th District

Philadelphia, May 23 – Rep. Donna Bullock, D-Phila., announced today that she will host two events this week that will address environmental and neighborhood safety issues for residents of the 195th District.

The Emergency Community Meeting will take place from 6:30 p.m. to 8 p.m. Wednesday, May 24 at Redeem Baptist Church. In response to recent incidents in the news within the Strawberry Mansion area involving a missing girl and an abduction of two young boys, the meeting will cover neighborhood and children safety.

“These incidents happened within blocks and days of each other, and raises a lot of concern about whether our children know how to be safe in the neighborhood,” Bullock said. “We want to connect families with the necessary resources and information to keep our youth safe while they enjoy their local community.”

From 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. Thursday, May 25, at the Fairmont Water Works, Bullock will provide an update and host a listening session on environmental justice. This session will be used as a platform for state leaders that include Patrick McDonnell, acting secretary for the Department of Environmental Protection, and Carl Jones, director of environmental justice, to hear directly from residents, concerning environmental issues.

“With topics as important as this we must give our constituents the opportunity to have their voices heard and also for us as leaders to update them on the actions we are taking,” Bullock said. “This line of communication will be vital to our progress on these issues.”
