HARRISBURG, April 13 -- State Rep. Chris Rabb, D-Phila, is advocating for formal acknowledgement of the extraordinary work of caregivers of Pennsylvania’s veterans through the Hidden Heroes campaign. “Many times, a veteran’s caregiver is a spouse, parent and other loved ones whose lives are transformed, their goals set aside, and they rearrange their lives to help the ones who sacrificed the most for us,” Rabb said. “We need to recognize that these women and men are heroes and sacrifice more than we currently understand.” The Hidden Heroes campaign is an initiative through the Elizabeth Dole Foundation that seeks to raise awareness of the struggles of these special caregivers. It also seeks to establish a national registry where veterans and their caregivers can access resources available to them. Read more

PHILADELPHIA, Feb. 3 – State Rep. Chris Rabb, D-Phila., will host a Thankful Thursday event from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. this Thursday at the Wadsworth Library, 1500 Wadsworth Ave., 19150. The event will focus on how people can protect themselves and their loved ones against scams and fraud and allow Rabb to discuss legislation he recently introduced to compensate Pennsylvanians exonerated for wrongful convictions. An expert from the Pennsylvania attorney general’s office will be in attendance to talk avoiding scams and being the victim of fraud. Rabb will discuss legislation he recently introduced which would compensate Pennsylvanians who are exonerated for wrongful convictions. Pennsylvania is one of only 15 states without a law to compensate the innocent for years lost after a wrongful conviction. Wrongful convictions often leave those people who are exonerated in the difficult position of reentering society after a period of incarceration without any services or money. Wrongful convictions have resulted in lawsuits that have cost Pennsylvanians millions of dollars. Rabb’s legislation would allow people who can demonstrate proof of their innocence to be eligible for a sum of money per each year they were incarcerated, as well as social services that would help them rejoin their communities. Rabb hosts regular Thankful Thursday events around the 200 th Legislative District to Read more
