Australia’s ABC News reports on the struggle to stem gun violence in Philadelphia


Washington correspondent Lisa Millar of the Australian Broadcasting Corporation and video journalist Rob Hill recently came to Philadelphia, spending two nights on the street with Joseph Kaczmarek of the Gun Crisis Reporting Project to take a look at the challenge of reducing gun violence in our city.

One of our strategies for impact at the Gun Crisis Reporting Project includes supporting other journalists and news organizations who seek solutions to gun violence, and we helped this team get connected with many of the individuals working directly to reduce violence in our city.

Like two members of the #GunCrisis reporting team, Lisa Millar is an Ochberg Fellow at the Dart Center for Journalism and Trauma, which requires that participants have demonstrated “consistent and thoughtful journalistic engagement with issues of violence, conflict, tragedy and their aftermath.”

The Australian team was the latest among many local, national and international journalists to collaborate with the Gun Crisis team. We have been working with another national news team in recent weeks.

  1. drug deal went bad ended up with him being shot 5 times! if you live the gangsta life, you’ll get shot, don’t be a gangsta, you won’t get shot.

  2. So, perhaps we would have less gun violence if we could afford more life choices to more people?
