215 People's Alliance

215 People’s Alliance is a multi-racial collaborative dedicated to fighting for equity and justice in Philadelphia – at the ballot box, and in the streets. We are parents and neighbors, teachers and students, union members and block captains, cab drivers and cashiers working to unite a broad sector of Philadelphians to make meaningful change.

Philadelphia City Commissioners

215 People’s Alliance is joining with the Pennsylvania Working Families Party to demand that Mayor Jim Kenney and the City Council appoint and confirm a designated member from a third party rather than a Republican. City Commissioner Al Schmidt, a Republican, resigned from the three-member board before the end of this term and by law, this minority seat cannot go to a Democrat. Instead of a special election, Mayor Kenney will soon appoint a replacement to be confirmed by City Council. This minority seat does not have to come from the Republican Party, but can come from any minority party.
