Boogie Rose’s Spoken Word Campaign Announcement for Philadelphia City Council District 2

by | Feb 7, 2023

Boogie Rose is carrying on her family’s legacy of community activism in District 2 with the clarity and urgency of what present-day Philadelphians need and deserve. Born and raised in Point Breeze, Boogie watched her uncle Terry Carpenter, her cousin/twin Chris Cotton, and her father Moses Cotton fight for what they believed in and didn’t take no stuff while they did it!

As a 33-year-old, queer, Black Philadelphia School District teacher and spoken word artist Boogie has lived through the best and the worst– the love and the despair– of this city. These experiences are what drives her to run for office.

To win District 2 for the people, Boogie needs your support in any and every possible way:
