The Philadelphia Association of Community Development Corporations (PACDC) is a member organization and thought leader for the city’s CDC sector. Part of its role is contributing to the work their members do everyday, including securing funding for community development and teaching communities how to better themselves. PACDC also has a more indirect role of helping the CDCs articulate their goals, work together and stay informed.

PACDC’s annual magazine is a vehicle for this goal. It contains articles, features and opinion pieces on the latest developments in the CDC sector. In the 2014 edition, the recent land bank legislation and gentrification are given special attention, as both are issues CDCs are heavily involved with.

City Council President Darrell Clarke wrote an article about programs for owners facing rising property taxes and Councilwoman Maria D. Quiñones-Sánchez wrote about the Philadelphia Land Bank.

The most in-depth feature in the 2014 edition tackles how the sector can create more equitable development in light of the recent heated debate around gentrification.

“Our cover story, Beyond Gentrification, Toward Equitable Development, and related articles are meant to launch a broader dialogue about the future of our neighborhoods,” writes Executive Director Rick Sauer and Board President Rose Gray in an introduction to the magazine. Gray is also the founder of the Asociación Puertorriqueños en Marcha, one of the city’s most celebrated CDCs.
