We the people won back our Right to Breathe from a century of oil refining in South Philadelphia, and now justice is due. In October 2020, Philly Thrive launched our multi-year Right to Thrive campaign, seeking to repair 154 years of violence by achieving a complete clean up of the former refinery land, dignified jobs & investment in surrounding neighborhoods, and a permanent seat at the table for residents most impacted by the refinery. As the largest redevelopment since Philly was founded as a city, we will organize residents across neighborhoods and backgrounds to uproot environmental racism during the land’s rebirth so that future generations can Thrive in our city.
