    2018 TreePhilly Yard Tree Giveaway
    Trees are one of the best investments we can make in the future of our city. When properly cared for, urban trees provide valuable and vital services - like clean air, increased property values, and peaceful neighborhoods. TreePhilly's Community Yard Tree Giveaway program empowers community groups to help restore Philly's urban forest - starting in their own back yards!

This should be an interesting discussion.

    Justice in School Funding: A Constitutional Imperative
    Pennsylvania has the greatest gap between rich and poor school districts in the nation. This disparity is the result of one of the lowest state contributions to education in the country. Tens of thousands of students living in poverty languish in under-resourced schools as a result of inadequate and inequitable school funding.
