Every year, Philadelphia magazine does a roundup of the city’s most “influential” residents.
That term, as discussed in the package’s introduction, is nebulous: Influential to whom? In what way? Good or bad?
We’re excited to see a number of people who have appeared in the virtual pages of Generocity. This year’s jam-packed list includes the likes of:
- Philanthropic families such as the Haases of William Penn Foundation (#18) and the Lenfests of the Lenfest Foundation (#21)
- Education gurus such as Penn President Dr. Amy Gutmann (#2) and School District of Philadelphia Superintendent Dr. William Hite (#14)
- Local gov players such as Democratic District Attorney Candidate Larry Krasner (#12) and Office of LGBT Affairs Director Amber Hikes (#91)
- Activists such as Right2Work cofounders Ben Miller and Cristina Martinez (#87) and Black & Brown Workers Collective cofounders Shani Akilah and Abdul-Aliy Muhammad (#45)
- Nonprofit leaders such as Esperanza CEO Luis Cortés (#80) and Broad Street Ministry founder Bill Golderer (#90)
Philadelphia Eagle Malcolm Jenkins (#36) got a shoutout for his on-field activism, Philadelphia 3.0 Director of Engagement Jon Geeting (#61) earned a nod for “populariz[ing] the city’s evolving urban fabric” and food security advocate Michelle Taylor aka Feminista Jones (#25), got props for her social media mobilizing.
