Is Philadelphia a safe city to live in and visit? You wouldn’t think so by looking at many news headlines, like Axios Philly’s recent coverage touting the results of a new Gallup poll about perceived notions of safety for 16 U.S. cities.
The traumatic impact of gun violence on Philadelphians and communities across the U.S. Emphasizing perceived safety over actual lived experiences from the community. Exploitative practices pioneered by Philadelphia outsiders can dehumanize and endanger victims, inflict additional trauma, and undermine support for public health efforts and solutions, studies and outcomes if not addressed correctly or within the community.
