Nicolas O’Rourke works as a Community Organizer for POWER where he has brought together people across race, income, faith, gender, and neighborhood lines to fight for systemic change in our society. Focusing on restorative justice, he has actively organized on issues such as ending mass incarceration, stop and frisk, police abuse, and the cash bail system. Nick is also a Pastor of the Living Water United Church of Christ which supports his social justice ministry. If elected, Nick’s priorities would be to end the current 10 year Tax Abatement, increase funding for the Police Advisory Commission, and make SEPTA free for students and persons with low income. Nick’s commitment to progressive values and his understanding of the power of organizing working people will make him an excellent City Council Person who will work to bring opportunity to all.
