A 2026 that is By the People, For all People

Philadelphians have a whole lot of heart. Every day we push our communities to bring their own unique voices, creativity and energy toward making Philadelphia the very best it can be. We envision a world inspired by everyone’s freedom of expression and dedicated to turning those voices into real ideas for change, together.
