About Event

If you care about the future of Philadelphia, this event is for you.

If you want a better understanding of how our next Mayor will be elected, and how you can best support the candidates you believe in, this event is for you.

If you believe in change through unity and coordination, this event is for you.

On May 16, 2023 - Primary Election Day - approximately 200K city voters will vote to choose our city's next Mayor. Let's work together to make sure Philly has a mayor that works with us, not just for us.

During this free event, 10k Independents' Director of Policy and Advocacy Anne Gemmell will lead an overview of the upcoming race, and share specific strategies for how you can get involved in supporting your favorite candidates.

You'll leave with:

  • Helpful context for our upcoming election, and the issues being discussed

  • A brief history of Philadelphia elections, and what we can learn from them

  • Guidance and strategies for how you can get involved in supporting your candidates

This event is free, but RSVP is required to attend. Proof of vaccination + booster is required by Indy Hall's health and safety policies.

If you cannot attend this date, or prefer an online/virtual event, sign up for our free events newsletter to be notified when we announce an online version.

Note: The 10k Independents Project is not backing any specific candidates. Our agenda is transparent, and our organization is led by engaged citizens and small business owners. We aren’t here to tell you what to think, or even ask you for money.

Instead, we’re working to coordinate and unify our networks and communities to ensure our next Mayor works with us, not just for us.

We want to meet you where you are. No political wonkery, just talking to each other like the neighbors and fellow citizens we are.

We believe Philly needs a better plan. Do you?

The 10k Independents Project is a coalition of people and orgs working together to shape the landscape of our city by advocating for the existing Independent workforce, and helping 10,000 Philadelphians become sustainably self-employed over the next 10 years.

We know that real change requires unity and coordination, and we want to ensure that our next mayor is aligned with our collective interests.

Not just the interests of the small business community, but for anyone who wants Philly to do economic development differently.
