'We need more help': Philadelphia groups given nearly $1 million in grants in fight against gun violence
PHILADELPHIA - Gun violence continues to plague the streets of Philadelphia, becoming more frequent and senseless over time. However, the District Attorney's Office is making a shift, trying to bring the focus back to community solutions."I should say, be available to answer some questions about the homicide death of the 14-year-old, which occurred over the weekend," DA Larry Krasner said during a recent weekly gun violence press conference.Instead, the Philadelphia official took the opportunity to address the most common complaint from community groups out on the street doing the work to combat violence."There will be more forfeiture money distributed within a few weeks, and we want to make sure that every nonprofit organization in Philadelphia is aware of this and understands the details of how they can apply," Krasner said.These groups say they need help, but they are too busy trying to save lives to apply for grants or raise money.The DA’s office says they can provide directly to the neighborhoods that need it the most using seized drug forfeiture funds."We try to take the money that came from a particular zip code and put that money back into the zip code because we do not think that drug dealers and other people who engage in criminal activity should be tearing apart that neighborhood," Krasner says.
