On April 4, we gathered back at Pipeline Philly in Philadelphia with REC Philly & Witty Gritty to debrief. How did it go? What are other ways we can practice urban diplomacy & share Philadelphia stories around the world?
Some takeaways from City Lobby with Amplify Philly:
1. Keeping efforts like Amplify Philly collective & communal are key to include more voices and a truer representation of what Philly is and looks like.
2. There is definitely some "special sauce" in Philly — an organic feeling of community and family that can't be fabricated.
3. We need to better support and lift what is already happening in the city. We don't necessarily need a SXSW here.
