UPDATE: This story has been changed to reflect that the kick-off event has been postponed.

Social Chang(h)er, a support system for female dreamers, thinkers and creatives in Philadelphia, was originally schedule to have it’s kick-off event at Benjamin’s Desk on April 26, but it’s been postponed and will probably launch this fall.

However, you can still check out Social Chang(h)er when Sonja Claxton pitches Social Chang(her) at the Mobilize.org Pitch event (as part of the Mobilizer Academy) held on May 3 at Impact Hub.

“Social Chang(h)er is building a platform for women who are interested in social impact work,” said Claxton. She added that these women can be social entrepreneurs, social innovators, and women who are passionate about solving some of the bigger social issues in society.

In addition, Claxton said that Social Chang(h)er was created because she realized that “there isn’t a platform, there isn’t a place right now for female social innovators.”

Inspired by her work with Ignite Good and her personal experiences, Claxton created Social Chang(h)er as a way to tell the story of Philadelphia through the eyes of women who don’t normally get asked to share their story.

“It’s really just about celebrating and encouraging more people and women in Philadelphia to think of themselves as social change agents and social changers,” Claxton added.
