A group of entrepreneurs and concerned citizens gathered Thursday afternoon to address how the African American business community can address crime and gun violence in Philadelphia.

The discussion hosted by the African American Chamber of Commerce of Pennsylvania, New Jersey and Delaware (AACC) was part the On the Table Philly 2019 conversations. Spearheaded by Philadelphia Foundation and the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation, On the Table is a day dedicated to elevating civic conversations, fostering new relationships and creating unifying experiences in the region.
