Bright Philly Future grew out of a coalition that came together in response to the news of a December 5, 2014 closed-door conference bringing wealthy investors and representatives of international corporations together to lay plans for turning our city into an “Energy Hub”. This “Energy Hub” would be a receiving, processing and exporting center for some of the most damaging fossil fuel products known.

Working together, we realized that we share an alternative vision of Philadelphia as a Clean Energy Hub, a vibrant, dynamic, just and democratic city, a beacon for the 21st century. The solutions to our many concerns–about jobs, opportunity, public health, clean air and water, and social and economic justice–are right in front of us.
