The Climate Justice & Jobs team will be hosting a Prayer Vigil & Voter Registration event in support of Philly Thrive, at the Cira Centre.
Hilco, the new owner of the former refinery site, has their local HQ in the Cira Center, so we’re gathering to remind them that POWER stands with fence-line neighbors for a redevelopment plan that will be fair to neighbors who have borne the burdens of pollution there. This is a huge tract of land – 2% of the whole city, the largest single redevelopment project ever in Philadelphia’s history – so it’s important to all of us that this site transition out of the fossil fuel industry with the health and future of the community at the center. And, it’s another reminder of why we need all our people’s voices to be heard in elections and in everyday politics.
