Southwest residents are invited to join LISC Philly via Zoom for this series of Community Conversations as we explore the hopes and possibilities of Southwest, together as neighbors.

The recent and coming investments in Southwest Philadelphia have heightened the urgency of local residents and groups to exercise ownership over what is taking place in their neighborhood. Led by local community leaders, residents and organizations are working together to define a collaborative approach for how the community welcomes new investment and development.
