  • MY BROTHER'S KEEPER

    In February 2014, President Obama launched the My Brother’s Keeper (MBK) initiative to encourage communities to implement a coherent “cradle – to ‐ college ‐ and ‐ career strategy” for improving the life outcomes of all young people. The City of Harrisburg has accepted the challenge and chose to focus on: decreasing violence in our communities by ensuring young people are employed when out of school.

  • PROJECT HARRISBURG

    The City of Harrisburg asks for your financial support in establishing a fund to defend our common sense gun ordinances against the NRA. They prohibit discharging a weapon within the City limits except in cases of self-defense, carrying a firearm in a City park or playground, selling firearms during a declared state of emergency, possessing a weapon in public as an unsupervised child, and failing to report a gun lost or stolen.
