Philadelphia – June 14, 2019 – Sen. Larry Farnese (D-Philadelphia) announced that the Pennsylvania Commission on Crime and Delinquency (PCCD) has awarded grant funding through various sources to support Philadelphia programs to assist victims of domestic violence and treatment for substance abuse. “Some of the people in need of the most help are victims of violence and those who are struggling with substance abuse,” said Farnese.
“Yesterday, the Senate Democratic Caucus received a briefing on the investigation into allegations against Senator Daylin Leach.
After reflecting on what I learned, I am calling for State Senator Daylin Leach to resign due to his history of improper conduct and for the real harms his conduct has caused. I believe that victims deserve to be heard, believed, and their claims must be investigated thoroughly.”
Philadelphia – May 10, 2019 – Sen. Larry Farnese (D-Philadelphia) is pleased to announce that the Philadelphia Senior Center on the Avenue of the Arts has been awarded a 2018-2019 Senior Center Grant to implement and improve programs.

Harrisburg, May 6, 2019 − Sen. Larry Farnese (D-Phila.) and Rep. Kevin Boyle (D-Phila.) today renewed their fight to put sexual orientation and gender identity back under the protections of Pennsylvania’s hate crimes law.
