Know of any great under-40 neighborhood association leaders? What about an activist? Or maybe you just know someone in your community quietly working to make it better every day. If you know anyone who falls into these categories, we need your help.

We’re looking to highlight Philadelphia’s most dynamic, young community and neighborhood leaders and activists for an upcoming installment of “Who’s Next.”

The intent of Billy Penn’s “Who’s Next” series, presented by the Knight Foundation, is to introduce readers to the most dedicated young people working to shape our city every day. Our goal is to identify and track the next generation of leaders and influencers across a broad spectrum of fields.

We’ve been showing off some of Philly’s most dynamic under-40 leaders for more than two years now. Check out each of our monthly Who’s Next lists here, which feature people in disciplines ranging from artists to lawyers to teachers to chefs. We’ve featured community leaders before, both in 2014 and 2016.

To nominate someone to be featured on Billy Penn‘s Who’s Next: Community leaders and activists list, fill out the form below — or send an email to tips@billypenn.com with “Who’s Next: Community” in the subject line. Please submit nominations on or before Feb. 8.
