This mission is simple: bring together each of Northeast Philadelphia's neighborhoods to form a unified & community-driven action plan for the next four years. Join your neighbors and decide what you want your Northeast to look like by 2020. How?
Northeast residents are at our best when we come together to solve problems as one unit. Remember when civic associations joined under the common goal of splitting the 15th Police District, to provide for better response times? In the end, an unprecedented 30 new police officers were assigned to the District. Northeast 2020 is no different.
Residents will come together with policy makers, thought leaders and others to find solutions to some of the most pressing issues facing our neighborhoods - from public safety and health to education and community spaces. Everyone will contribute - and everyone will share in the benefit of changing how to get things done.
"I'm in. Where do I start?"
Sign up: Let us know you're ready to get to work. We are hosting four issue forums, starting on April 7th. You will receive briefing materials for each forum in advance - so study up. Issue forums include:
Show up: Each forum will allow residents to bring neighborhood-specific concerns surrounding an issue to the table. Moderators will help facilitate discussion and, after each forum, an action plan will be developed. No issue is too big or small.
Speak up: Want to get more nurses in schools? Let's figure out how many and make it happen. Need a stop sign for your block? Sign up, show up and speak up to make your voice heard.
Sign Up. Show Up. Speak Up.
