Inside PHLCouncil

Ep 18 - Councilmember Kendra Brooks

April 9, 2021

Welcome to Inside PHLCouncil, the official podcast of Philadelphia City Council. Each week, we provide a recap of the latest news from Philadelphia's legislative branch of government and an in-depth interview with one of our members or someone making an impact on Philadelphia.

This episode features a recap of latest news on Philadelphia's vaccine distribution plan. Later, we talk to freshman Councilmember Kendra Brooks (At Large) about her bill to provide paid sick leave for frontline workers during the pandemic and her new legislation to include coercive control in the city's domestic violence statutes. We also discuss the unique approach she brings to Council as its first third party member.
