During this unprecedented election year, all eyes are on Pennsylvania. Amidst a global pandemic that has had far reaching health, social, and economic ramifications across Philadelphia and the Commonwealth, our country is also having a reckoning with systemic racism. The importance of C70’s work, in this city, in this year, cannot be understated. If ever there was a time in our history when Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, and the nation needed the Committee of Seventy, this is it.
