PHILADELPHIA, P.A.—- Personalities over Policy.
These are just some of the sentiments of Philadelphia residents. People have grown weary of allowing the personalities of leaders to supersede the implementation of policy. It would seem the community no longer desires to have Public Servants who overlook the Public. The community, when they are heard, will tell you what they want. What’s desired are community based policies that protect locations like the Community Healing Garden on 3049 Wharton Street. Innovative policies that empower the underprivileged citizens of Eastwick, Cobbs Creek, Southwest Philadelphia, and the Forgotten Bottom. Change is needed. Change only happens when someone steps up to contest the current opponent. The Art of War. Wise change happens when current leadership removes the ego, sits with the people, and grooms the next leaders of Philadelphia. Wise change is the only way the entire community wins.
Boogie Rose, known activist and lifelong District 2 resident, is the ideal choice as the next generation to groom for such leadership. Although this 33 year old former Philadelphia School District Teacher and Founder of Society’s Roses and The Community Healing Garden grew up in South Philadelphia, through perseverance, integrity, and faith, Boogie Rose remained protected by her community from becoming a product of the environment. An environment which cultivated spaces like the Community Healing Garden, which served as a site to teach, fellowship, build, and commune as a community. Like other locations within District 2, and around Philadelphia, the CHG is a space that once fed families for over a year and is now fenced off from the community. Join Boogie Rose this Saturday, January 28, 2023 at 11am, 3049 Wharton St, 19146. Come listen to the next leadership of District 2.
As a starting point for the campaign platform, Boogie has synthesized her lived experience, what she’s heard from residents and community organizations in District 2, and the policy solutions generated by the Alliance for A Just Philadelphia in the People’s Platform.
