I am pleased to announce that I will be leading the Senate Democrats in a statewide Racial Equity Solutions Tour.

Caucus members will hold conversations, both in-person adhering to CDC guidelines and virtually, throughout the summer, in addition to lending their voices to protests and events organized by local community leaders.

This is another important step in our efforts to bring tangible changes to Pennsylvania and end the systemic racism that still plagues our commonwealth and our nation. We have had enough listening, now is the time for action. Protests in every corner of the world have shown us that when people rise up, change happens. This tour will be an outlet for community lead change in Pennsylvania. Check out the events below:
