About Us

TOSPSB was created by a South Philly mother on August 4th, 2013 after her 11 year old son was a victim of a crime.  Carol Lanni had enough of watching her family, friends, and neighbors becoming victims.  She knew that Philadelphia Police were out there doing what they could to fight crime, but perhaps there was more that she could do.  That is when she created the "Taking Our South Philadelphia Streets Back" Facebook page.  Her goal was to heighten awareness of what was happening in our neighborhoods, and to educate our kids on how to stay safe.  “We don’t want to put people in harm’s way or be vigilantes,” said Lanni in an interview with South Philly Magazine.  “We just want people, especially kids, to wake up. You’ll never hear me say I have all the answers,” Lanni added. “What I do know is our kids, both those involved in nonsense and those not, are vulnerable. My son had nothing physical happen to him, but what about next time?”  After creating the page Lanni hit the streets and the media to get the word out.  Soon she was doing interviews with NBC10, CBS3, and KYW Radio.  To this day Lanni has not stopped doing all that she could to make all of South Philadelphia safer.  As a result she has enlisted the help of volunteer administrators for the Facebook page and Twitter account, and has earned the support of several civic associations, many city officials, and the Philadelphia Police.
