Northeast Philly Rally for Kendra and Nic


Northeast supporters of Kendra Brooks and Nic O’Rourke and members of 215PA’s Northeast Chapter rallied today in front of the NE Free Library Branch on Cottman Ave. The 215PA Northeast chapter is a diverse group of Northeast residents who believe their vision for our city is what our neighborhoods need. There’s a long time myth that Northeast Philadelphia is a quasi-suburban area free from the problems of inner city Philadelphia. Now in the face of growing poverty, overcrowded schools and the shrinkage of affordable housing it’s becoming clearer that our part of the city’s future is bound up with that of our neighbors across the rest of Philadelphia.
