    Painted Bride says farewell to iconic building in Old City
    This weekend, the Painted Bride will hold its 49th anniversary party, and it's likely to be the organization's last hurrah in Old City. The Painted Bride has been a cornerstone of the Philadelphia culture scene for almost a half-century, starting in a scrappy storefront on South Street and then in the 1980s, moving into a former elevator factory building in Old City.

"Listen to an inspiring presentation by Jordan Burnham. Jordan is a professional mental health speaker from Active Minds who speaks out about his struggles with anxiety and depression. His story gives hope a voice. A popular student athlete, Jordan Burnham was elected Freshman Class President, got good grades and had a loving family, including an older sister he adored. But the smiling happy face was a mask he wore to cover the anxiety and depression that lay beneath the surface—fear that he wasn’t good enough, difficulty with the transition into high school, pressure to excel academically as well as in sports. A year later, he found himself in a treatment center, and not long after that, in a hospital bed, following a suicide attempt. Now, Jordan speaks out about his struggles, a messenger of hope for others- that although we can’t choose the things that happen to us we CAN choose how we cope with them."

    Jordan Burnham (Active Minds) speaks about mental health coping & surviving
    The Mental Health First Aid unit of the Department of Behavioral Health and Intellectual DisAbility Services (DBHIDS) invites you to - Listen to an inspiring presentation by Jordan Burnham. Jordan is a professional mental health speaker from Active Minds who speaks out about his struggles with anxiety and depression.

How can we encourage more active participation in elections? Change starts with us, and it starts by exercising your franchise. There are few people who legitimately can't vote, even formerly incarcerated and some who are currently incarcerated can. So let's do this!

    What we can learn from low Pa. primary election turnout, and why it matters that just 1 in 6 Philly voters showed up
    Turnout in Tuesday's primary election was lower in the city than in the rest of the state. Experts cited many reasons for that, and a resultant problem: Uneven voting makes for uneven representation. - Jonathan Lai, Philadelphia Inquirer and Daily News
