Last Thursday, we brought in a panel of experts to discuss gun violence in the United States and the policies that have been proposed in the aftermath of recent mass shootings. In the words of The Philadelphia Citizen, "While there’s no one answer to the question, “How do we end gun violence?” the panelists and the audience explored its legal, social and cultural underpinnings, local efforts to curb gun violence, and ways we could move forward on the issue." You can hear an edited recording of their discussion in Episode 24 of Citizen Cast. We'll host another panel discussion on May 18. The topic for In Conversation with the Rosenbach: Flash Focus will be announced in early May! http://thephiladelphiacitizen.org/podcast/#tile24

    Last Wednesday, thousands of students from across Philadelphia and the country joined together for a day of walkouts-an opportunity to honor the 17 lost during the Parkland, Fl., shooting in February and to demand more comprehensive, common sense gun reform and action from policymakers.

Good day neighbors! As you are shoveling tonight, contemplating your role in the community, as you all surely do, why not think about what you can do to participate in the 2018 Philly Spring Clean Up! The clean up is scheduled for April 7, and most people participate in the morning hours. Some info: A) If you'd like to register your block or a vacant lot, you can do that on the Streets Department website. By Registering, you make your project visible to other neighbors looking for something to get involved with. And, you get free supplies from the city, like brooms, rakes and most importantly: BAGS ** If you register a project, feel free to post it here for other near neighbors to see! Before and after photos get major likes. ** PROJECT SUBMISSIONS ARE DUE FRIDAY, MARCH 23!! B) If you don't have a project, you can look for on the Streets website for one near you. If you don't see one, refer to point A C) Streets will be around on that Saturday afternoon to take away bags upon bags of trash, as well as debris from alleys and lots. D) If you don't have a project, and you don't want to find one, by golly, grab a broom and a bag and just git out there! E) Watch this space for more news about special treats from East Point Breeze Neighbors for Cleaners and Greeners on April 7! http://www.philadelphiastreets.com/philly-spring-cleanup/

    Philadelphia Streets:
    Spring has sprung and the cleaning season has begun. The 11th Annual Philly Spring Cleanup will be held on Saturday, April 7th. With your help, we've managed to make each of the last ten years bigger and better than the last. Let's make it a clean sweep!

    This Gunpowder Photo Might Be Literally Explosive
    When people call a photograph explosive, they usually mean it metaphorically. That's not the case with Justyna Badach's work. The Philadelphia-based photographer actually used gunpowder to make the prints for her new series-so they could, quite literally, blow up.

    The Most Dangerous Things You Can See in Museums
    There are a lot of kinds of danger. Some threats are loud and obvious, others are covert and subtle. Some are immediate, others take months, years, or centuries to develop. We got some of each kind when Atlas Obscura contacted museums that know danger-places dedicated to weapons, espionage, natural history, and disease-and asked: What's the most dangerous thing in your collection?
