The Friends Center is prominent in my spiel within the Global Philadelphia Association about what makes Philly unique and outstanding among other great cities. You guys provide a great and much needed “truckstop” for social action and civic engagement… I have lived in many places, and can honestly say that Friends Center is a most unique and city-defining entity.
