Record your thoughts at PhillyCAM this Saturday

We’re hosting an open studio at PhillyCAM from 1-5pm on Saturday, Dec. 15 to give y’all the opportunity to record your thoughts on camera about what your life would be like if you felt economically secure. Or, you can voice what would Philly be like if it wasn’t broke. From this, we will cut a powerful 90-second video to circulate during January, Economic Mobility Month. We want Philadelphians from all backgrounds and income levels to participate. So come on out to share your thoughts! (Read more.)
