PEOPLE POWER, LOCAL CONTROL
Bright Philly Future proposes a resilient, green energy plan that puts people, not corporations in charge of our vital natural resources and public infrastructure.
INVESTMENT IN PROVEN SLOUTIONS
Philadelphia is home to an abundance of talent, imagination, and proven successes when it comes to sustainability. Hard-working Philadelphians have already laid the groundwork of the imagination for our next era, and the solutions we need are right in front of us. We believe that the key to the future of Philadelphia lies in investment in practical, proven, community-based solutions, rather than corporate deals which cut jobs and exist only to siphon off more wealth into the hands of those who are not invested in the future of our communities.
LEADERSHIP FROM THE GROUND UP
With the right leadership, these solutions will work for everybody, improving the health of communities, creating jobs, expanding public services, and turning Philadelphia into a national leader for the twenty-first century. Bright Philly Future is committed to being your guide to these ideas and the organizations who are working to make them reality.
We believe that the future direction of our city should be decided through an open and transparent process, not in closed-door meetings between powerful economic interests and select politicians.
DEMOCRACY AND EQUALITY
We believe in an economy that works for everyone, not just a privileged few, a plan that puts equal justice, living wage jobs, clean air and water, and public safety ahead of corporate profits.
We know that the technology already exists to meet our energy needs responsibly, without sacrificing health and safety or contributing to catastrophic climate change, and that the only thing standing in our way is the lack of political will to wholeheartedly embrace a sustainable future. Our purpose is to create that will!
We welcome input from responsible businesses, neighborhood associations, working families, students, senior citizens, and all Philadelphians interested in building a future that is just, sustainable, healthy and secure.
