    Safety for women, teenagers and children starts in the home and community, not at the police station or on the courthouse steps.  Please join District Attorney Seth Williams, members of his office and other partners to discuss ways to make you and your family safer.

    There will be workshops guided by experts in fields including internet safety for your teenager, avoiding and escaping domestic violence, and the risks presented to our teenagers and young women by the scourge of Human Trafficking. There will even be a workshop where police officers will teach you effective self defense techniques.

    On October 5, immigrant communities and their allies will be holding marches and rallies in over 60 cities across the country calling for just and humane immigration reform with a pathway citizenship, legal immigration rules that promote family unity and protect worker rights, an end to the destruction of our families through deportations, and a halt to the rush towards massive wasteful spending on unneeded border militarization and for profit immigrant detention prisons.

    Here in Pennsylvania, join Pennsylvania United for Immigration Reform (PUIR) for a rally at LOVE Park calling for immigration reform that promotes family unification, followed by a march to the ICE offices to demand an end to deportations.
