Philadelphia has been at the lead of fights to advance social justice across the country. Earlier this year at Netroots Nation, a national convention that brings together progressive organizers and legislators to discuss the most urgent issues affecting communities, we saw the power of Philly in action.
Organizers from Philly-based community groups shared their stories: recounting the wins they’ve achieved, discussing the strategies they’ve used and planning for the challenges we still need to overcome. Our video of highlights show some of the Philly movement leaders who made Netroots Nation a historic event in Philly. We are excited about what we can accomplish next, as we unite and use our collective power to incite change in our city and our nation.
