General Meetings provide an opportunity for group education about gun policy issues, strategy discussions, skills and movement-building work, committee updates, and financial reports. General Meetings are typically held on the first Monday of every month at varying locations across Delaware County (please refer to our latest email communications for details). The meetings begin at 7:00 PM and end at 9:00 PM. The meetings are open and participatory, and individuals who have signed on to our mission statement are welcome to participate in any group decisions made at the meetings.

From Jessica: I joined Delco United in 2016, became a member of the board in 2017, and acted as the outreach coordinator for much of 2018, before stepping us as a co-chair. I am passionate about growing support for our cause, and taking the next step towards change in our current gun laws.
From John: I am the former Mayor of the city of Chester, and have been a member of Delco United since its inception in 2013. In addition, I have been active since 2010 in common sense gun legislation initiatives with CeasefirePA, Mayors Against Illegal Guns, and and Cities United. I am proud to share the co-chairship with Jessica, to continue this amazing work with all of you.
