The Block Captains Forum in West Philadelphia was well attended. With over 100 Block Captains in attendance, we managed to engage about 10% of Block Captains registered in West Philly’s three zip codes.
Our really great facilitators and speakers connected with on-the-ground community leaders, providing inspiration, information, and resources to help block captains make their neighborhoods better. We look forward to working with these presenters as we further develop our strategy for working with block captains.
District Attorney Seth Williams and Council Member Jannie Blackwell addressed the forum before participants headed into workshops. Attendees also enjoyed networking over breakfast and lunch, connecting with each other and a number of organizations and city agencies. (If you missed the event, check out the program online!)
We are excited to continue connecting, engaging, and informing our community leaders to work together to make their neighborhoods great places to live, work, and raise a family.
