Partnering with Roadmap for Growth

1 October 2014
News

The Mayor’s Commission on Literacy is pleased to be a partner of the Greater Philadelphia Chamber of Commerce’s Roadmap for Growth for the City of Philadelphia: 2015-2020. The Roadmap for Growth campaign seeks to develop an agenda for the city that promotes job creation and economic prosperity through 2020. Through working with partners and a variety of forums, the Roadmap will work to build consensus on strategies that the new Mayor and members of City Council can pursue in 2016.

Throughout fall 2014, the Chamber will host Listening Tour sessions. The Listening Tours will be a forum for community members and civic leaders to share their ideas about community revitalization, job creation, and economic growth in Philadelphia. Sessions will take place in different neighborhoods in conjunction with Councilmembers. Friends of the Commission, Alliance members, and adult learners are encouraged to attend a Listening Tour and voice their support for the importance of adult education in economic growth. Please contact Deana Gamble, Director of Marketing and Communications, if you plan to attend a Listening Tour to represent a literacy program or the adult education community. To participate in discussions online, visit the Roadmap’s digital platform or use #PhillyRoadmap on social media.
