    #PHLYouthTalks: Gun Violence from Parkland to Philly
    The tragedy at Parkland adds to the growing list of school shootings nationwide, but Philadelphia youth are impacted by gun violence daily. We're inspired by the students in Florida that are challenging their state and federal elected officials, and we're here to join the momentum to advocate for safe spaces for youth and a reduction in gun violence in the City.

Cobbs Creek Neighbors shared CityLab's post.

This problem is not isolated to our community, our city or even our state.

    Not One American State Has Enough Affordable Housing
    While supply varies by state, not one has enough housing for low-income renters. Finding affordable housing isn't getting any easier for the more than a quarter of U.S. renters that are extremely low-income.

Why historic preservation is important.

Why historic preservation is important.

    Found in South Philadelphia, an Underground Railroad station
    From the outside, 625 South Delhi Street looks like an average Philadelphia rowhouse. But in the 1850s, it was home to Underground Railroad leaders William and Letitia Still. Within the house's narrow confines, they sheltered hundreds of escapees and gave well-known figures like Harriet Tubman shelter.
