As we move toward the close of 2013, the Gun Crisis Reporting Project would like to thank all of you who have supported us in so many ways.
We have been honored through national and international media recognition, numerous journalism awards and even some very important community awards this year, but most importantly, homicides are down sharply in Philadelphia, and we want to see that trend continue.
We do our best to inform readers who seek more information on gun violence incidents, issues and solutions. We illuminate groups and individuals working to prevent gun violence — and we provide professional support.
We focus on solutions when we meet officials, convene communities, visit colleges and universities or advise journalists covering gun violence in Philadelphia.
But we need your help. Your tax-deductible contribution will help sustain our reporting into the new year, and to build a hub for everyone to participate in bringing an end to gun violence.
And help us help Philadelphia stop the shooting.
