Recent events have been life-changing, particularly for Philadelphians living in poverty.

A global pandemic. A crashing economy. National racial reckoning. Now, more than ever, it is imperative that local—and national—leaders work together.

The Forum on Justice & Opportunity mobilizes a network of citizens, practitioners, and city leaders who are committed to:

  • Changing the narrative on poverty, busting myths about those affected
  • Advancing evidence-based practices that increase economic mobility
  • Influencing our city’s systems in hopes of helping more of our neighbors move out of poverty for good

This year, the Forum on Justice & Opportunity will be an immersive, week-long virtual experience.

Get Ready!

Monday, October 26 through Friday, October 30, there will be hour-long sessions daily, so lots of opportunities for you to participate safely.
