A One-Stop Shop For Helping You Make Philadelphia Better


The first requisite of a good citizen in this republic of ours is that he shall be able and willing to pull his own weight.
—Theodore Roosevelt

We’ve had enough of waiting for Superman. For too long, we’ve outsourced leadership to elected officials and a permanent Philadelphia establishment. If, like us, you’re ready to get off the sidelines and make a difference where you live, this is the place for you: A resource that makes it easy for you to do something and let your voice fly on civic issues you’re passionate about. Because citizenship isn’t a passive activity. See our ideas below, and let our Social Action Team help you get involved, stay engaged and make a difference.



Want to play a part in making Philly better, but not sure how to get started? Become a member of The Citizen and get a one-on-one civic engagement coaching session from our Social Action Team.




Holding a cool, civic-minded community event? Contact our Social Action Team to discuss how we can help.



Want to get involved, but not sure how to do it?  Check out our Do Something guides for some great ideas about how to get started.
