September 2023 Meetup

Join 5th Square organizers and volunteers for an informal, in-person meet-up over at the PHS Pop Up Garden at Manayunk!  This is an outdoor, family-friendly event where we will provide updates on our recent campaigns.  We will also be discussing mobility, safe streets, and access to transit specific to Northwest Philly neighborhoods.

We welcome the following guests at this meetup, who will be giving an update on the new Wissahickon Transportation Center:

  • Will Kunkle, Project Manager, SEPTA Building and Bridges Department
  • Jennifer Wallace, Constituent Relations Coordinator, SEPTA Government Affairs
  • Wendy Green-Harvey, Manager, Local and Community Affairs, SEPTA Government Affairs.

Also in attendance will be staff from State Representative, Tarik Khan and Louis Bartholomew from Safe Streets PAC who's going to give a brief summary of legislative progress at the state-level.

These meet-ups are casual social gatherings, and are intended as a fun way for new and existing supporters to connect with other people involved with 5th Square and urbanist issues in Philadelphia, either professionally or in a volunteer/activist capacity, and learn more about what our all-volunteer organization is up to. If you've been meaning to check out one of our events or meetings but haven't made it out yet, this will be a good first one to come to. And please bring a friend or two!
