Public Safety / Violence Reduction
Homicide rates are four times higher in Englewood and West Englewood than the citywide average and people are four times as likely to be shot in those communities compared to Chicago as a whole.

Sonya Harper has worked tirelessly in state government to fund violence-reduction programs, pass stricter gun laws, and also a create restorative justice programs that limit overly-punitive sentencing.
