Members, Philadelphia Ethical Society
As a member of Philadelphians Organized to Witness, Empower and Rebuild (POWER), the Ethical Society can contribute to building a City of Opportunity that Works For All. Who governs the education of children and teens in Philadelphia? Nick Sanders will give a brief summary of the recent history of public education governance in Philadelphia and provide likely options for the near future. Kate Esposito will give an overview of the impact of poverty wages especially in North Philadelphia, and why we need to raise the minimum wage to $15 for City contract and subcontract workers, and Sylvia Metzler and Marta Guttenberg will discuss issues related to mass incarceration and policing.
