Over 110 participants packed the adult reading room last night for a conversation sponsored by The Free Library of Philadelphia's Center for Public Life and The Philadelphia Citizen. The event brought together neighborhood residents, policy leaders, and civic stakeholders to discuss new approaches to thoughtul, equitable and inclusive development that works effectively to shape our communities to serve everyone. We appreciated the commentary of our panelists: *Rasheedah Phillips, Esq., Managing Attorney of the Landlord-Tenant Housing Unit at Community Legal Services of Philadelphia; *Brian Murray, co-founder of impact urban real estate group Shift Capital; *Ariel Vazquez, member of South Kensington Community Partners; and *Marwan Kreidie, Founder and Executive Director of the Philadelphia Arab-American Development Corp. Moderating the panel was Diana Lind, Managing Director of the Penn Fels Policy Research Inititative and board member of The Philadelphia Citizen. We were also privileged to host information tables from organizations serving our community: Philadelphia Commission on Human Relations, Philadelphia More Beautiful Committee, Philadelphia Tenants Union, Lutheran Settlement House, Philadelphia Photo Arts Center, Old Kensington Neighborhood Association, and South Kensington Community Partners. Thanks go to Federal Donuts, Mammoth Coffee, and Rustica Pizza, who all provided delicious samples for event attendees. We look forward to continuing this dialogue in the not too distant future!
