For some, New Year's resolutions offer chance for Philadelphians to make changes together

PHILADELPHIA (KYW Newsradio) — Many Philadelphians are using the new year to make resolutions, but some want the whole city to make some changes together in 2020. 

The 2019 homicide rate was the highest Philadelphia has seen in more than a decade, and Azaraha Robinson says she wants that to change.

"We want the crime to stop. We want this gun violence to end, our young people are dying in droves," Robinson said. 

Fred wants the city to come together and make that resolution.

"Just more peace and love, less violence," he said. 

Christopher Adams wants every resident to do their part to make the city look better.

"I would like us to get out clean the city, do the things ourselves, even if it's in front of our own homes and nobody else is home. That's still one section that you took care of, and hopefully someone can see you do that and want to do that for themselves," Adams said. 

Adams adds he would also like to see Philadelphians be nicer to each other.
