Vare Washington is trying to bring musical theater back to their school! Performance will be this May, and open to the public. Please consider a donation to help purchase costumes, lighting, props, and the rights to the musical itself. Any amount will help achieve this goal!

    Bring Back Our Musical! by Zachary Duberstein
    Prior to the merger of Abigail Vare and George Washington Schools, George Washington was known for putting on amazing musical performances; lighting, elaborate costumes, choreographed dance and song routines, the works! Sadly, due to lack of adequate funding, the school has gone without a musical for several years.

The leaves in Queen Village are almost all to the ground as Fall ends and Winter begins. We are excited to bring comprehensive leaf clean up to the neighborhood for the second year in a row. Over the next several weeks, we will be working to remove leaves from streets and sidewalks. This helps to keep our neighborhood clean through the Winter months and into the Spring. If we miss your street and it has a lot of leaves to remove, let us know by emailing info@qvna.org and we will try to get to it! Check out these before and after photos of Catharine Street.

Fascinating story about a house everyone in QV has seen... Staying a single family home apparently.

    A rare Queen Village mansion eludes redevelopment, will remain a home
    Despite Queen Village's heightened attractiveness in recent years, the rare estate-like property at 113-21 Bainbridge Street, owned by Philadelphia's Steen family, could not sell three years ago. But when it was put on the auction block earlier this year, it drew interest from developers, builders, and residents alike.

Immigration: Five Ways To Support Immigrant Communities

Located on 6th Street near Washington Avenue, Juntos is an organization  that empowers and equips the Latino community with knowledge and resources to fight for their human rights as workers, students, and immigrants.

This article has 1 other Philadelphia location (Show)

Asian Arts Initiative (AAI) is a community-based arts center on Vine Street near 12th that engages artists and everyday people to create art that explores the diverse experiences of Asian Americans. Through visual expression, even the most complex stories of immigration and assimilation can be told.

    In a so-called sanctuary city like Philadelphia, immigrants can become active and engaged in community organizing to educate themselves and others about their rights in America. Here are five active organizations that offer educational programs and events for immigrant communities.
