What we're about
Do you love Philly? Want to make positive change? We do! Every month, come join us for parties, news panels, networking opportunities, special interest discussions or happy hours all revolving around local Philly specific topics and initiatives ranging from technology to politics to journalism. This is a group for people who love local Philadelphia news and are interested in civic engagement.
Billy Penn is a local Philadelphia news start-up specifically with the mission to help create local Philly communities to make the city better. Through our site, we share and deliver local news and information to drive civic engagement via affinity groups and events in the area.
As an extension of our mission, we want more people in Philly to connect with each other to make our communities stronger and great. While we share the news online, it's through meeting up together that we hope to really achieve our goals to make Philly awesome. Come join us to meet other people committed to sharing local news and knowledge and committed to making Philly a better place.
