Will the red wave that overtook Pennsylvania continue into next year? Can progressive ideas become policies? In many ways, politics are more interesting than ever, and Billy Penn is honoring 13 young Philadelphians who are helping mold the future of the city, state and country as part of its latest installment of Who’s Next.
Who’s Next is a monthly series presented by the Knight Foundation in which we highlight leaders under the age 40 in various fields. You can see previous lists here. Since 2014, we’ve highlighted people in law, tourism, music, education and much more. For our final list of 2017, we present 13 young Philadelphians shaping the city’s political future.
