The Attack on the Poor and Working Class

Philadelphia is a tale of two cities. Nearly one in three Philadelphians live at or below the poverty level.

City government needs to focus on reversing that number.  The programs that drive people further into poverty must be addressed and changed.

Police Reform is Critical

Philadelphia needs 21st Century training for the Police, not the outdated training they are currently receiving. Accountability is fundamental. Police are sworn to protect and serve the community...all communities. When this trust is violated, the response must be swift and just. Police accountability is a must.No one is above the law, especially law enforcement. 

$ 15 Minimum Wage

Philadelphia must join other major American cities in more than half of the states in increasing the minimum wage.

Repeal the Soda Tax

The Soda Tax is an unfair tax on Philadelphia's poorest population. 

The Mayor's bill was passed by the primary election Philadelphia police accountability incumbent City Council Philadelphia with a vote of 13 to 4. 

The Homeless

The Homeless are the most vulnerable among us in the city. We have a moral responsibility to protect and assist people in crisis. Over the past few years, many shelters have closed their doors. It's time to turn Philadelphia's many abandoned buildings into shelters to provide a safe environment for Philadelphia's most vulnerable.

There are many more issues which effect the people of Philadelphia. Together our voices will become a choir of power in the chambers of City Hall. Remember: The People United will never be defeated! 


Peace and Blessings, 

Asa Khalif
