Billy Penn has been showing off some of Philly’s best leaders for more than a year now, and this time around, we’re looking to highlight some of the up-and-coming leaders in neighborhoods and communities across the city. So far, we’ve highlighted everyone from union leaders to artists, and you can view each of our monthly Who’s Next lists here.

The intent of Billy Penn’s “Who’s Next” series, presented by the Knight Foundation, is to highlight some of the most dynamic people working to shape our city every day. Our goal is to identify and track the next generation of leaders and influencers.

We’re looking for some of our city’s best leaders under 40 who are shaping their neighborhoods and communities every day. To nominate someone for Billy Penn‘s Who’s Next: Community Leaders list, fill out the form below — or send an email to with “Who’s Next: Community Leaders” in the subject line. Please submit nominations on or before March 16.
