Civic Impact Birthday Party

Oh, what a night!

Oh, what a night!

On Wednesday, the Citizen celebrated two years of solutions-oriented journalism with a Civic Impact Birthday Bash. But enough about us…

To say that we were humbled by last night’s turnout would be an understatement. With attendance in the triple digits, this was a night to celebrate YOU—Disruptors, Citizens of the Week, change-makers and creators of social impact-alike! We couldn’t have gotten this far without our members. We hope to continue to bring you local stories that shine a light on the darkest corners and celebrate solutions that challenge us all to be better citizens of the planet.

The Philadelphia Citizen will only publish thoughtful, civil posts. We want to be a communal space. But that doesn’t mean you have a First Amendment right to be an idiot. Send us an insulting, offensive and/or wildly off-topic comment and not only will we refrain from posting it -- we will laugh at you before we hit delete.
