"Need A Little Help" (needle and petition delivery)

  • Philadelphia City Hall (NE corner)

On June 22, the day after school ends, the NEED A LITTLE HELP campaign will deliver hundreds of heroin needles, picked up off the streets of Kensington, to public officials in Philadelphia. You're invited to come to City Hall (NE corner) for the delivery of the needles along with a petition.

As residents of Philadelphia, we have collected 100s of needles off our streets this year, and we are delivering jars full of the needles to you as a plea for help. Please work together with our community to stop the trafficking of drugs through our neighborhood.
This is a public health issue. It is an economic issue. It is a safety issue.
It doesn’t have to be this way. Our children do not have to grow up thinking it is normal to see needles on the sidewalk. We believe we can build a neighborhood that we are proud of – but we need a little help from you.

(See Facebook post from Shane Claiborne)

Larry Krasner will speak briefly about how the District Attorney's Office can help address the drug epidemic in Philadelphia.
