PHILADELPHIA, PA — Pennsylvania U.S. Senator John Fetterman spent Martin Luther King Jr. Day in Philadelphia, attending events, addressing community leaders, and participating in the city’s annual Day of Service.
Fetterman spent the morning speaking to the Barristers’ Association of Philadelphia, which helps address the professional needs and development of Black lawyers in the city.
Later, Fetterman addressed the city’s annual Martin Luther King Jr. Day of Service at Girard College, helping put together gun safety kits that will be distributed to the city’s community.
Fetterman’s remarks at the Day of Service noted his record as Mayor of Braddock fighting against gun violence and making the community safer.
“In Dr. King’s memory, we must continue his legacy. That means giving back to our communities, fighting for true economic justice, standing up for voting rights, protecting our democracy, calling out injustice, and demanding equality,” said Fetterman.
