McClinton partners with community leaders for day of service

PHILADELPHIA, Jan. 22 – This week, state Rep. Joanna McClinton hosted a day of service in celebration of Martin Luther King Jr. Day. 

McClinton partnered with President Judge Idee Fox and Judge Sierra Thomas Street, as well as members of New Options More Opportunities Youth Program and the Mural Arts Restorative Justice Guild for the community service event.

“It’s incredible to be able to gather judges, court staff, probation officers, probationers and young people from our community together for a service project, especially in honor of the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.,” McClinton said. “When people of all backgrounds come together to help the next generation of students, we’re seeing criminal justice reform in action. I’m excited to continue to break down barriers that exist within the justice system throughout the year.”  

Participants worked together to repaint the gymnasium at William C. Longstreth Elementary School in Southwest Philly.
