Oronde McClain Story

Meet Oronde McClain, a Philadelphia native who devoted his life to optimizing the quality of life for the mentally disabled and victims of gun violence. He has created peaceful protests and hosts many events to give back to his community. Oronde McClain’s focus is to stop the effects of gun violence in young children and the struggles they deal in, and Like himself, he had to experience it his whole life.

Good morning everyone, my name is Oronde McClain. I am a 31-year-old black male born and raised in the city of Philadelphia, or as the street calls it, Killadelphia. As a young black male venturing out into society to enhance his community, it is my primary goal to stop or at least decrease Philadelphia’s violence and help the people in need. My reason for helping is that after April 3, 2000, I knew I was not an ordinary child anymore. I could not enjoy a typical sunny day out because I had so much to worry about like if it were too hot or cold, I would have a seizure.

If I would’ve heard a loud noise, I would have thought someone was shooting at me. My best bet was to stay in the house. I could not try anyone, nor could I not do anything on my own. I always needed assistance putting clothes on, eating, and getting in and out of my wheelchair. It felt like my life was over. I had to go to therapy five days a week for 10 yrs. As a result of walking in my new community in Mt. Airy to a local store, I caught in a crossfire at ten years old. I got shot in the back of the head and was in a coma for a month, wheelchair for two years. I come before you today 31 yrs. Old college-educated motivational speaker, full-time father of 5 and a husband, with a non-profit organization and full-time job with the government,  is telling you that the violence must stop.

Although I made it and have a great story, my city does not always have great stories. Gun violence has risen, children are still getting shot it is too many funerals. Children are not living their full potential because they cannot while the neighborhood is destroying. Today it stops. I cannot prevent the drugs, I cannot control the violence, but today as a whole, we can do something about it. Today I come to you asking for help and let us begin a partnership. Let us clean the streets and let our children live again. Today I am stepping up. I am asking you to join forces with me. They say it takes a village to raise a child, let us reunite, they are saying. One killing/victim is too many.
