For the past six months, we’ve being pushing quietly for Mayor Nutter to institute the Good Neighbors policy. The Good Neighbors policy would make mega-nonprofits pay their fair share towards the schools and services we depend on, by taxing properties that aren’t used for charitable efforts.
Well, we’re done pushing quietly. It’s time to launch a campaign.
Join us outside Mayor Nutter’s office for our formal press conference launching Good Neighbors Philadelphia and recognizing our coalition partners!
Tuesday, April 23rd
Philadelphia City Hall, 2nd Floor Hall
- Featuring AFSCME DC 47 President Cathy Scott and City Councilwoman Blondell Reynolds Brown!
Together, we'll call on Mayor Nutter to issue assessments to mega nonprofits and enforce the Good Neighbors Policy, raising tens of millions of dollars for our city's schools and public services.
RSVP on facebook, and be sure to invite your friends!
