The video below was produced back in 2001 when there was a great deal of very positive activity on Frankford Avenue. The five people who were interviewed for their recollections of Frankford give first person accounts of things we can now only read about. It is only about 20 minutes long but well worth seeing again. Thanks to Joe Menkevich for digging up the old VHS tape.

I have been a witness to both sides of the criminal justice equation, and I have experienced tragedy that is far too familiar to families and individuals across our nation.

Our Constitution was founded on such a principle, and I believe that the people of Pennsylvania deserve that same chance at redemption – they deserve our support and they deserve our advocacy.
