Kinsey applauds Wolf’s budget provisions

(Feb 05, 2020)

PHILADELPHIA, Feb. 5 – State Rep. Stephen Kinsey, D-Phila., applauded the 2020-21 state budget proposal outlined Tuesday by Gov. Tom Wolf. “Governor Wolf’s proposal is ambitious and is exactly what’s needed to lay the foundation that poises Pennsylvania to be a better, more equitable commonwealth,” said Kinsey, who serves as subcommittee chairman on education in the House Appropriations Committee. “My top committee duty will be to work relentlessly to ensure that these proposals become concrete and implemented.” Wolf’s budget proposal includes heavy investment in public schools and early childhood education, as well as new workforce initiatives to prepare more workers for in-demand jobs. Wolf proposed a new scholarship program to help students in the Pennsylvania State System of Higher Education avoid crushing student debt. “Student loan debt bounds college students to a life of misery and potential financial ruin,” Kinsey said. “I’m thrilled for these provisions that would not just provide financial relief for graduates, but also address every academic stage in the lives of young Pennsylvanians to prepare them for bright futures.” Reiterating his strong commitment to keeping Pennsylvanians safe, Wolf proposed additional measures to protect vulnerable populations and renewed his call for legislators to pass measures to reduce gun violence, including a “red flag” law and Read more

 

PLBC reflects on deceased NBA star Kobe Bryant’s legacy, leads effort to pass resolution

(Jan 30, 2020)

HARRISBURG, Jan. 30 – Following the death of NBA star Kobe Bryant and his 13-year-old daughter Gianna, who were among 9 people killed in a helicopter crash on Sunday, state Rep. Stephen Kinsey, D-Phila., chairman of the Pennsylvania Legislative Black Caucus, along with caucus members, reflected on the Pennsylvania native’s legacy and his activism, and spearhead bi-partisan effort to have Bryant’s memory etched in the state’s legislative record by way of a House resolution. “Lives were lost, and families are mourning. A wife and mother is mourning the loss of her husband and child; siblings are reeling from the loss of their father and sister,” Kinsey said. “Across the globe, our nation and in our commonwealth -- where Kobe grew up -- young children are trying to comprehend the death of a world-famous athlete, a role model they innocently thought was immortal. “Through basketball, Kobe inspired, unified and uplifted people around the world. As chairman of a legislative body that tirelessly advocates for policy that is inclusive and demands fairness for black lives across our commonwealth, I especially appreciate Kobe using his celebrity platform for his activism to elevate black voices by unapologetically wearing a ‘I can’t breathe’ shirt, compelling everyone to recognize our humanity and the pervasive culture of police brutality,” he said.

Kinsey outlines Northwest Philadelphia public safety tour, set to host communitywide meeting

(Jan 24, 2020)

PHILADELPHIA, Jan. 24 – Following the spate of shootings throughout the city, one of which left an 18-month-old baby suffering from a bullet-graze wound just blocks away from his Germantown district office, state Rep. Stephen Kinsey, D-Phila., today outlined Step Up, Stand Up -- a grassroots community campaign to end gun violence throughout Northwest Philadelphia. To kick off the campaign, Kinsey and state Rep. Isabella Fitzgerald, who represents Northwest Philadelphia’s 203 rd Legislative District, were joined by local community organizations and city law enforcement for a roundtable discussion on rampant gun violence across Northwest Philadelphia. “While our loved one’s lives are cut short and our community reels for solace through these dark times; our legislature turns it back by ignoring our calls to vote on the nearly two dozen bills that would address gun violence and ultimately save lives,” Kinsey said. “We must take back our communities and I extend the invitation to anyone else in helping to develop comprehensive actions to end this public health crisis.” Step Up, Stand Up, an initiative that Kinsey is leading, is geared toward providing comprehensive approaches to reducing local and citywide gun violence through education, community empowerment and fostering healthy relationships between residents, community organizations, law enforcement, and city, state and federal officials. Kinsey said he is seeking input Read more

 

Cephas to host MLK Day of Justice on Jan. 18

(Jan 08, 2020)

PHILADELPHIA, Jan. 8 – Inspired by a quote from Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., state Rep. Morgan Cephas announced she will host a day of justice to help give people who have dealt with the state criminal justice system a second justice. The event will take place from 2 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. Saturday, Jan. 18 at Shepard Recreation Center, 5700 Haverford Ave., 19131. “Doctor King once said, ‘If America is to remain a first-class nation, it cannot have second-class citizens.’ I whole heartedly believe this, yet we have so many people in the commonwealth who are treated unfairly following their time behind bars,” Cephas said. “This event will provide an opportunity for people to get the information and resources they need to help clear their record and get on proper footing to lead productive lives for their families and their community.” Cephas said a news conference will be held to launch the soft opening of the Haddington Participatory Defense Hub. Those in attendance will be able to learn about the state pardon process and record expungement to determine if they may be eligible to get their record erased. Refreshments will be served. To RSVP, call Cephas' office at 215-879-6625. Read more

 

Kinsey blasts Mummers for use of blackface for second year in a row

(Jan 03, 2020)

PHILADELPHIA, Jan. 3 – State Rep. Stephen Kinsey, chairman of the Pennsylvania Legislative Black Caucus, called the use of blackface by members of the Froggy Carr Wench Brigade during the New Year’s Day Philadelphia Mummers Parade racist. “It was just last year, almost exactly to the date, that the Mummers stirred controversy with an incident of similar nature. PLBC representatives met with them and attempted to use that as a teachable moment on how hurtful and racist these character portrayals are, but this year, we’re through,” said Kinsey, D-Phila. “We’re through with trying to reason with an entity that is essentially a modern minstrel show laced with hate speech, xenophobia and the denigration of Blackness under the guise of entertainment. We can no longer tolerate having our humanity and skin color repeatedly mocked and donned as costumes.” Kinsey applauded Philadelphia Mayor Jim Kenney for censuring and subsequently disqualifying the Froggy Carr Wench Brigade but pressed for more substantive consequences for performers who engage in racially insensitive behavior. “I am pleased that Mayor Kenney immediately stepped up to condemn the use of blackface; however, as chairman of the PLBC, I’m calling on the mayor to impose more harsh penalties that are swift and severe for any performer or troupe who indulges in this disgusting spectacle.

Stephen Kinsey and Isabella Fitzgerald, both D-Phila., hosted their second annual Holiday Toy Giveaway at the New Journey Christian Center on Saturday. “We’re at the peak of the holiday season and what better way to celebrate than giving toys to our local youth,” Kinsey said. “I am pleased to partner with my House colleague, community leaders and business partners in hosting another successful annual toy giveaway.” Nearly 300 families attended the event, and more than 350 children received presents, just in time for Christmas. The children and their families also indulged in holiday music, refreshments and a visit from Santa Claus. “When communities come together, the possibilities are endless in how we can truly make a difference,” Kinsey said. “Our community joined forces in providing this amazing and festive event to bring joy to every child and family this holiday season. I look forward to more years of spreading joy.” The lawmaker duo thanked Pastor Rob Harrison and First Lady Liz Harrison of the New Journey Christian Center, Philadelphia 14 th Police District, Men Who Care of Germantown, Philadelphia Alumni Chapter of Kappa Alpha Psi, Mentoring Our Youth Through the Arts, community leaders, business partners and other civic organizations.

Cephas introduces legislation to lower maternal mortality rates

(Dec 18, 2019)

HARRISBURG, Dec. 18 – In her continued effort to bring awareness to the disproportionate number of deaths of women of color during and after childbirth in the commonwealth, state Rep. Morgan Cephas, D-Phila., announced she has introduced a package of bills aimed at addressing maternal mortality rates. “Pennsylvania has seen an increasing, disturbing trend in pregnancy-related deaths, with 11.4 deaths per 100,000 live births from 2012 to 2016. For women of color during that time period, that rate was more than double, at 27.2 per 100,000 live births. This is a clear indication that regardless of income and education levels, women of color are at an even greater risk than white women to die from pregnancy-related complications,” Cephas said. The bills introduced by Cephas are: H.B. 2107 – Would add severe maternal morbidity to the list of reportable events within the Pennsylvania Department of Health. H.B. 2108 – Would extend Medicaid coverage for pregnancy related and postpartum medical assistance. H.B. 2109 – Would extend Medicaid coverage to doula services and create a Doula Advisory Board. H.B. 2110 – Would require training to address implicit bias and culture competency that impact care and quality of care for patients of color, including women of color during pregnancy and childbirth. “While the death of any mother is a tragedy, Read more

 

Cephas to introduce legislation to protect older Pennsylvanians

(Dec 16, 2019)

HARRISBURG, Dec. 16 – State Rep. Morgan Cephas, D-Phila., announced she is introducing legislation designed to protect older Pennsylvanians from abuse while living in assisted living and long-term care facilities. “No one deserves to be a victim of abuse, and that’s certain for our commonwealth’s aging population,” Cephas said. “Our seniors have worked their entire lives to provide for and raise their families while making significant contributions to their community. They should not be denied the appropriate level of care and compassion that they deserve.” The two bills, known as the Assisted Living and Long-Term Care Resident Bill of Rights, would explicitly convey the needs and rights of residents, regardless of their race, gender, sexual orientation, age or ethnicity, and ensure these needs are met. Some of these needs include mail privacy, access to health care, free from restraints, right to privacy, access to the local ombudsman, and the right to live free from neglect, intimidation and physical or verbal abuse. “While these things seem to be obvious, abuse against older Pennsylvanians is a far too common reality. More than 18,000 cases of abuse were reported between 2016 and 2017. For people of color and marginalized communities, the magnitudes of abuse are higher,” Cephas said. “My legislation would help address one of the most alarming health concerns Read more

Kinsey announces $5K state grant for Philadelphia’s only surviving Underground Railroad stop

(Dec 05, 2019)

HARRISBURG, Dec. 5 – State Rep. Stephen Kinsey, D-Phila., today announced a $5,000 state grant has been awarded to the Johnson House Historic Site that will go towards the continued preservation of historical records. “The Johnson House Historic Site is the oldest home in Germantown and also the only Underground Railroad stop still standing in Philadelphia,” said Kinsey, chairman of the Pennsylvania Legislative Black Caucus. “This home has served as a think-tank for agents of social justice and those seeking freedom. This grant will enable JHHS to showcase and preserve the contributions of these revolutionaries for generations to come.” The Johnson House Historic Site will use the grant to organize and preserve its archives and special collections- comprised of historic materials that have been collected over the course of decades- and make them available for research and educational purposes. The grant is funded by the Historical and Archival Records Care Grant Awards, administered by the Pennsylvania Historical and Museum Commission. They are intended to improve the preservation and accessibility of historically significant records maintained by local governments, historical societies and academic institutions. Projects include initiatives such as digitization; arranging, describing and rehousing collections into appropriate formats, containers, and environments; and disaster planning. The grants are administered on a Read more

 

Fitzgerald introduces legislation to protect gun owners, promote public safety

(Nov 25, 2019)

HARRISBURG, Nov. 25 – State Rep. Isabella Fitzgerald, D-Phila., announced she has introduced a series of bills designated to protect law-abiding gun owners, children and residents in the commonwealth. “It’s unfortunate that anyone could potentially become a victim to gun violence here in Pennsylvania. Whether accidental or intentional, one life lost is one too many. We must put commonsense legislation in place to prevent senseless killings from occurring in the future,” Fitzgerald said. “My three bills would preserve the rights of Pennsylvanians who are carrying guns legally, safeguard our children from being killed accidentally and enforce a ‘cooling-off’ period for a person who may have experienced an unpleasant incident in their life and who looks to potentially commit an act of violence.” The bills introduced by Fitzgerald are: H.B. 2076 – Would require driver’s licenses and photo identification cards to indicate a person possesses a concealed carry permit. H.B. 2077 – Would require all firearms be safely stored whenever they are not in use. H.B. 2078 – Would establish a 72-hour waiting period for purchases of semi-automatic assault rifles. Fitzgerald is a member of the PA SAFE Caucus , which is made up of 70 members of the PA House and Senate who believe in reducing all types of violence in society through Read more

 

McClinton applauds passage of legislation outlawing sexual extortion

(Nov 21, 2019)

HARRISBURG, Nov. 21 – State Rep. Joanna McClinton, D-Phila./Delaware, today applauded the passage of bipartisan legislation she co-sponsored, which would outlaw sexual extortion in Pennsylvania and empower law enforcement and victim services organizations to help victims of this serious sex crime who previously fell between the cracks. “Finally, victims of this horrific crime will have an avenue to seek justice and perpetrators of sexual extortion – which the Department of Justice has said is the most significantly growing threat to children – can be held accountable,” McClinton said. “I am elated to see this legislation receive bipartisan support in both the House and Senate, and I look forward to seeing Governor Wolf sign it into law.” McClinton introduced H.B. 1402 with Rep. Tedd C. Nesbit, R-Mercer/Butler. The House passed it unanimously in June. The Senate unanimously passed the bill on Wednesday after making small improvements to the legislation. Today, the House unanimously passed the bill on concurrence, and it’s headed to Wolf’s desk for his signature. McClinton said previously that by specifically adding sexual extortion as a crime, we can protect individuals from people in power who demand sexual acts, images or videos from victims, usually for something of value to the victim. “Now, would-be perpetrators will not be able to lord intimate photos or other Read more

 

Bullock commemorates Youth Experiencing Homelessness Week, Red Shirt Day

(Nov 21, 2019)

HARRISBURG, Nov. 20 – Today, state Rep. Donna Bullock, D-Phila., hosted a news conference alongside state Sen. Larry Farnese to recognize Educating Children and Youth Experiencing Homelessness Week in Pennsylvania, as well as Red Shirt Day, which raises awareness about homelessness across the state. “Homelessness has a profound impact on children’s success in school and later in life,” Bullock said. “It’s incredibly important to raise awareness of this issue so that teachers, administrators and other educators can offer support when it’s needed most.” “The number of youths experiencing homelessness increased by 22% this year. While we don’t know what factors are driving this, we know that these students need to be supported, that they have a right to an education and as much stability as we can possibly provide,” Farnese added. “That’s why we are here today and why Red Shirt Day is so important -- to assure these kids that they are not alone.” During the 2017-18 school year, more than 36,000 students were identified as experiencing homelessness or having inadequate housing. Bullock and Farnese were joined by advocates against homelessness, including Nikki Johnson-Huston; Thomas Jackson, a policy and research analyst with People Emergency Center; Ameera Sullivan, guidance counselor at Strawberry Mansion High School in Philadelphia; and Sonia Pitzi, Region 3 coordinator Read more

 

Kenyatta addresses closing of Pratt Early Childhood Center due to toxic conditions

(Nov 21, 2019)

PHILADELPHIA, Nov. 21 – Rep. Malcolm Kenyatta, D-Phila, issued this statement following the closing of Pratt Early Childhood Center due to asbestos and the School District of Philadelphia’s calls for Harrisburg to help fund its recently unveiled environmental safety plan for toxic hazard remediation in all its schools: “The calls from the parents, teachers, students and the School District of Philadelphia are being taken very seriously,” Kenyatta said. “No parent should have to fear sending their child to school and no child should ever be at risk for exposure to toxic materials while learning in an environment that is presumably safe. The health and safety our students and staff are my top priority and I’ve been working tirelessly to secure more funding to remove toxic hazards in schools in our community and across our city. “Just hours prior to learning about the abrupt closure of Pratt elementary school, I met with Governor Tom Wolf to discuss allocating more funds for our schools, in addition to the $4.3 million the governor provided in July.” To date, Kenyatta said, the governor has invested a total of $11.9 million for lead paint alleviation in schools across the city over two years, with $7.6 million provided last year. Since June 2018, through a combination of state funding and $11 million provided by the Philadelphia School District, 32 elementary schools have undergone lead paint stabilization by the Read more

 

Reps. Burgos, Toohil Achieve Big Win for Insuring the Spanish-Speaking Community

(Nov 20, 2019)

HARRISBURG, Nov. 20 – The Pennsylvania Insurance Department recently issued a Request for Proposals (RFP) with the goal to be able to offer, for the first time, insurance licensing educational materials and examinations in Spanish and Chinese, according to Reps. Danilo Burgos, D-Phila., and Tarah Toohil, R-Luzerne. “The option to offer these exams in Spanish is most welcomed and long overdue. My district has a very diverse population with many Spanish-speaking constituents. The Spanish educational materials and exams will benefit these citizens to help them navigate the system to easily access the information when they need it,” said Burgos. “I have many Spanish-speaking constituents who are finding it difficult to take the insurance class and pass the final exam to obtain a state license,” said Toohil. “By offering the educational materials and tests in Spanish, we are bolstering Pennsylvania’s insurance industry with new agents and allowing the minority populations greater access to the financial safety net that insurance can provide.” The two legislators met recently with Insurance Commissioner Jessica Altman to discuss the department’s efforts to seek a vendor to offer the educational materials and exams in the two languages. “As a department, we are committed to advancing consumer protections through our licensing programs and remain dedicated to educate Read more

Legislators, advocates help raise awareness for bone marrow donor need

(Nov 19, 2019)

HARRISBURG, Nov. 19 – Inspired by a Pennsylvania teen who is in need of a bone marrow transplant, state Rep. Stephen Kinsey, chairman of the Pennsylvania Legislative Black Caucus, hosted a news conference to bring attention to the crucial need of bone marrow donors, especially people of color. Kinsey was joined by Sen. Larry Farnese, D-Phila.; Rep. Carol Hill-Evans; Sarah Speed, a cancer mom; and Michael Garbin from Be the Match. The news conference was held in honor of Juwan Adams, a senior at Abington Senior High School who has been diagnosed with Hodgkin’s Lymphoma and who is currently waiting for a donor match. “At a 23% match rate currently, there is a crucial need for bone marrow donors among African Americans,” Kinsey said. “Juwan’s story is one of several that must be heard. Many of our young people are battling life changing diseases and require so much more than basic medical care. It’s important that everyone looks into being a donor if their health permits them, so they can be a hero for those who need and await lifesaving procedures.” Farnese said, “My father suffered from cancer and was the recipient of a bone marrow transplant, so I know how important these lifesaving registrations are. I hope that today’s event brings awareness about how easy it is to register and encourages my colleagues in Harrisburg and my constituents back home to sign up Read more

 

Davidson-sponsored bill to help breast cancer survivors passes the House

(Nov 18, 2019)

HARRISBURG, Nov. 18 – A bill co-sponsored by Southeast Delegation Chairwoman Margo L. Davidson, D-Delaware, to provide insurance coverage for custom breast prosthetics (H.B. 1457) overwhelmingly passed the House today . “The enactment of this bill would make a positive difference in many breast cancer survivors’ lives,” Davidson said about the bill she co-sponsored with Rep. Meghan Schroeder, R-Bucks. “That’s why I was proud to spearhead this bill through the House.” Currently, most insurers cover reconstructive breast surgery and off-the-shelf breast prosthetics for women post mastectomy surgery. There are some situations where neither of these two options are reasonable. Off-the-shelf prosthetics are not always possible if a woman has an irregular chest wall post mastectomy surgery and not every woman is a good candidate for reconstructive surgery. Though women post mastectomy surgery have an additional option with custom breast prosthetics, some insurers may not always provide coverage. The enactment of H.B. 1457 would enable women post mastectomy surgery to be able to choose the option that best serves them. “The successful passage of House Bill 1457 is a direct result of increasing gender parity in the House,” Davidson said. “This isn’t a Democratic or Republican issue; it’s a women’s issue. Female representatives from both parties came together to help pass a bill that will Read more

 

McClinton announces $80K tax credit for ACHIEVEability

(Nov 18, 2019)

HARRISBURG, Nov. 18 – State Rep. Joanna McClinton, D-Phila./Delaware, announced Monday that an $80,000 state tax credit been awarded to ACHIEVEability. “Programs that serve our community by helping our residents get stable employment are doing awesome work,” McClinton said. “This $80,000 will allow ACHIEVEability to make investments in this community that are returned many times over through its WorkSmart West Philly program, which aims to connect people with stable employment. “More than 25% of families in the 191 st Legislative District are living below the poverty line,” McClinton added. “This award will mark the first step toward positive change for many of those families by helping people get connected to workforce development programming, job coaching and other services that will allow them to join the workforce.” The tax credit announced Monday is through the Neighborhood Assistance Program, or NAP, which is administered by the Pennsylvania Department of Community and Economic Development. It’s intended to encourage businesses to invest in projects which improve distressed areas or support neighborhood conservation.
