What’s the Connection Between Boston and this Kensington Business Corridor?

Wouldn’t you rather have a say in what that empty lot down the block gets turned into? Or what small business inhabits the space for sale a few streets over?

Leaders from Philly’s Kensington Corridor Trust and the Boston Ujima Project joined a panel hosted by ImpactPHL this month to discuss the work they are doing in their respective cities to support small business, and ensure the people who have lived in their neighborhood for years get to stay there amid changes.

ImpactPHL committee member and Activest cofounder Ryan Bowers led the conversation with Kensington Corridor Trust Executive Director Adriana Abizadeh and Boston Ujima Project Executive Director Nia Evans.
