On February 18th, 2015 PACDC was joined by dozens of civic and community leaders of Philadelphia in releasing our Platform promoting Equitable Development in Philadelphia over the next administration. Philadelphia needs an Equitable Development strategy to capitalize on our current growth in a way that is inclusive of all Philadelphians and all of our neighborhoods.
Equitable Development is about eliminating today’s inexcusable inequalities and economic segregation as a method of creating a sustainable, stronger economy for all. Because Philadelphia does better when we all do better.
