Purple Queen caught up with Senator Anthony Williams at the announcement of new mural to replace Stop the Violence mural lost to development. The re-envisioned mural by Mural Arts Philadelphia artist Felix St. Fort aims to foster peace and hope while remembering those lost to violence almost exactly 30 years ago.

Senator Williams sites that violence in Philadelphia has been a long time ongoing problem, but he hopes that the new plan The Philadelphia Roadmap to Safer Communities that Mayor Kenney is rolling out to City Counsel will work.
