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:

Philadelphia Eagle Malcolm Jenkins (#36) got a shoutout for his on-field activismPhiladelphia 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.
