Our By the People, For all People approach provides the structure needed for multiple diverse stakeholders to achieve common goals. PHILADELPHIA250 initiatives are organized by contemporary applications of themes from the Declaration of Independence – revolutionary actions, pursuit of happiness, people’s histories, and shared prosperity.
Our mission is to ignite the passions of the people of Philadelphia with the revolutionary spirit of the Declaration of Independence—to create a commemoration that is truly by the people, for all people.
Leaders at PHILADELPHIA250 are passionate about Philadelphia, deeply involved with important organizations, and well-connected in our communities
