    The Retirement Crisis Facing African Americans
    There's a saying: When white America catches a cold, black America catches pneumonia. So, if there is an impending retirement crisis in America, what does that mean for African Americans? The answer to that question is discouraging. There is a huge gap in retirement preparation of African Americans compared to white Americans, generally speaking.

ATTENTION NEIGHBORS: Effective this Monday Ja...

ATTENTION NEIGHBORS: Effective this Monday January 22nd SEPTA will no longer be selling tokens at ANY stations. Please be prepared if you have been using tokens as your primary means for payment. Here is a pretty good article by PlanPhilly that attempts to answer any question you may have about purchasing fares without tokens. Feel free to comment below if you have additional questions and we'll do our best to help answer them. SEPTA - iseptaphilly.com

    Answers for all your SEPTA Key questions
    On Monday, SEPTA will stop selling tokens at subway stations, taking a long-awaited leap forward in the neverending game of hopscotch that is the rollout of its new fare payment system, SEPTA Key. The end of station token sales represents a significant first step towards scrapping the fare coins entirely in 2019, a full five years after their original retirement date.

    40 small ways to make Philly a better place
    In today's world, it can be easy to feel either under- or overwhelmed-or both-by all the good and bad that's happening around us. But before you throw up your hands and toss in the towel, consider the words of Martin Luther King, Jr.: "If you can't fly then run, if you can't run then walk, if you can't walk then crawl, but whatever you do you have to keep moving forward."

A great and timely piece about the Overbrook Education Center.

    Can Philadelphia solve its pollution problems without support from Washington?
    The center sits on the site of a former quarry that had become a dumping site. Fifteen years ago its neighbors turned it into a community center focused on environmental education. Jerome Shabazz is the head and heart of the organization. The site has an orchard, a greenhouse, and murals.
