In order for our communities to be safe, they must have access to education, jobs, and public services. Our citizens must have a critical voice in policing practices. There must be transparency & accountibility between pubic servants and the people they serve.
Strong Communities equal strong schools. ASD students deserve someone who will advocate for them. We need to reimagine what the education system looks like by examing the root causes that our school district is currently facing.
Housing is a human right. Our homeless population needs to be given the opportunity to succeed and autonomy to make those decisions. We must provide a year long warming shelter.
Allentown has qualified individuals looking for jobs and it’s our responsibility to make sure they have the resources to find them. Not only through neighborhood job centers but also through incentivizing developers to hire Allentown residents.
