Stop Targeting Black and Brown People

Keep Philadelphia Accessible and Affordable

Enact rent control. Use city land and money for affordable development. Make newly constructed homes accessible. Expand mental health programs.


Invest in Healthy Schools, Jobs and Housing

Invest in the Housing Trust Fund for low-income families. Use savings from closing jails for alternatives to incarceration. Clean up the toxic conditions in schools.


Make Corporations, Developers and Universities Pay their Fair Share

End the 10-year tax abatement. Make universities give payments in-lieu of taxes. Take control of taxpayer subsidies. Fight for employers to pay a living wage.


Expand Community Control of Land, Housing, Schools and Energy

Fix the Land Bank, protect green spaces run by Black and Brown communities. Nominate school board members who are accountable. Commit to the goals of a Green New Deal.


Make Philadelphia a Safe and Healthy City for Everyone


Protect the Dignity and Respect of all Work

Create an enforcement office to fight wage theft, defend paid sick leave, and the fair work week. Protect the rights of domestic workers, gig economy workers, sex workers, and others.


Ensure a Democracy Where We Can All Participate

Create a democratically elected school board. Create a publicly-owned bank. Enact public financing of city elections. Expand language access in all city agencies.
