The Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia officially kicks off today. We at Philly Set Go, Philadelphia’s first millennial political action committee, have spent many years experiencing all the amazing things Philadelphia has to offer. For some of us, Philly-ness has been with us our entire lifetime. Below, four of our board members give their recommendations on some things to do, see, eat, and drink if you are visiting Philadelphia for the convention (or even if you live here year-round!).
On April 20th, over 60 millennials gathered with Philly Set Go’s endorsed candidates to bring attention to and celebrate the importance of millennial voter turnout for the PA primary –– which is TOMORROW, April 26th.
Attendees had an opportunity to mingle with the endorsed candidates, learn how they could volunteer on Election Day, and got the chance to talk with some special guests. Including the endorsed candidates, special guests also included Councilman Curtis Jones Jr., State Representative Jason Dawkins, and City Commissioner Al Schmidt.
Each of our four endorsed candidates, Ben Waxman, Morgan Cephas, Sean Sullivan, and Jared Solomon embody the millennial driven, ethical, and serious leadership that Philly Set Go was founded to promote and support.
