Demand common-sense protections against gun violence in Philadelphia!


green

300 mass shootings this year alone. 45,000 people killed by gun violence in 2020 (the most recent year of data). #1 killer of children in America. 

Gun violence in this country is out of control. It’s true the recently enacted federal gun package is the most significant bi-partisan reform in 30 years. It’s also true that legislation does not go far enough, fast enough to protect all communities suffering from the current gun violence epidemic. 

Our communities are still at risk every day, and we need real leaders who are ready to step up and act to find real solutions for their constituents. There is so much we can do at the municipal level, and Derek Green is leading the way with simple and effective gun safety measures in the city of Philadelphia. 

In 2022 alone, Derek has delivered common-sense solutions to Philadelphia’s ongoing gun violence epidemic:

  • closing a loophole in unregistered weapons sales by ensuring that body armor purchases are reported, 
  • helping to determine which individuals are in possession of high-capacity weapons, and 
  • helping to prevent these senseless tragedies from ever occurring.

Derek Green believes that Philadelphia deserves nothing less than a government that works to empower its residents and fights for the fundamental freedoms and well-being of all.

With the Supreme Court’s recent decision to strike down common-sense gun laws, Green is showing us how cities can lead the way to protect and empower its residents.

Derek is committed to creating a safe and secure Philadelphia that stands as a model for other local governments, but he needs you to stand with him.

Recently, Republican extremists have been relentless in their attacks on human rights. Now more than ever, it is critical that we show our support for the local legislators who have proven their dedication to ensuring that every constituent is equally protected under the law.

Councilmember Derek Green believes that Philadelphia deserves nothing less than a government that works to empower its residents and fights for the fundamental freedoms and well-being of all.

With the Supreme Court’s recent decisions overturning Roe v. Wade, striking down common-sense gun laws, and decreasing government oversight of private companies, Councilmember Green will fight everyday to ensure that our city continues to protect and empower its residents.

When the federal government fails to act in the best interest of every American — regardless of race, ethnicity, economic standing, sexual orientation, gender identity, or zip code — we must stand together to ensure that our fellow community members are safe and protected.

Derek is committed to his vision of an equitable and accessible Philadelphia, but he needs you to stand with him.

Join Derek Green in the fight to make Philadelphia safe for everyone

Philadelphia is facing an ongoing gun violence epidemic and public safety crisis, and Councilmember Derek Green is demanding urgent change.

Philadelphia has received $1.4 billion in federal pandemic aid. Derek believes we should be using this to fund big ideas that will make our city safe, equitable, and prosperous for everyone.

Instead, only a fraction of that sum is being used right now.

Mayor Kenney recently adopted Derek’s plan to address our city’s policing shortage by waiving the police residency requirement, and Derek is advancing legislation to boost police recruitment through hiring bonuses. Now he needs your help advocating for a safer Philadelphia.
