Do you know a leader of color doing great things in the city of brotherly love and beyond? Nominate them for Generocity's 2018 Leader List 👏🏽😁

    Nominate a Philly leader of color to be recognized in Generocity's 2018 Leader List - Generocity Philly
    For the past three summers, Generocity has spent one dedicated month reporting on people of color doing important work in Philadelphia's social impact sector. We do this year-round, of course, but the goal behind "leaders of color month" of each year's editorial calendar is to highlight diversity in the communities we cover - nonprofits, philanthropy, social enterprises, local government and the like - even more than we usually do.
