[NEWS] Several Philadelphians To Be On Capitol Hill For President Donald Trump’s State Of The Union Address
Sister Mary Scullion of the Philly nonprofit Project Home is also on her way to Washington, D.C. Project Home is based in the city’s Fairmount section and its mission is to end homelessness.
Scullion was invited to the State of the Union Friday by Democratic Congressman Dwight Evans. Scullion jumped at the opportunity and hopes to send a message herself.
“Now, more than ever before, the safety net for those struggling to find their home is being frayed,” Scullion said. “We need Congress and ministration to take a strong-standing commitment to provide hope and opportunity because that’s the American dream — equal opportunity for all.”
