Philadelphia Inquirer Commentary: It’s Not Too Late to Talk About the Issues
University of Pennsylvania School of Social Policy & Practice Dean John L. Jackson, Jr. recently penned this intriguing opinion piece in the Philadelphia Inquirer. In it, Jackson urges voters to decide what matters most to them and to infuse real policy discussions into the presidential election.
“We should be shining a spotlight on pressing social justice and policy issues that might inform that change, such as gun policy, homelessness, mass incarceration, and mental-health treatment concerns, among other things,” Jackson said.
“It would be valuable to hear the leading candidates discuss these topics at length, topics that must be addressed if we want to make sure that any change we create actually increases the health and strength of our communities.”
