Philly Power Research

Philly Power Research is a group of volunteer researchers - including teachers, librarians, journalists, advocates, and activists - investigating the powerful organizations and individuals shaping Philadelphia. We believe that participatory research - where all people are engaged in asking questions about the power structure and seeking solutions to the issues they face in their communities -  is a key component of a vibrant local movement for just social change. We partner with groups organizing for justice and equity at the ballot box and in the streets. We aim to continue to build and support a strong action research community in Philadelphia
