The following letter was sent by the PHL Neighborhood Growth Project to neighborhood, business, and civic leaders.


Last week, we asked you to join us in supporting the Business Owners’ Bill of Rights to bring fairness, equality, and transparency to the process of creating a business.

And the response has been overwhelming.

We want to deliver a message to local government and show them that people all across Philadelphia support the Business Owners’ Bill of Rights. But we’re still short of our goal.

If just 7% of the people reading this email right now add their name, I know we can reach our goal and make a big impact at City Hall. Friend, will you add your name to support the Business Owners’ Bill of Rights?

The Business Owners’ Bill of Rights will help more communities get a fair shake when starting a business and will help them take part in our inclusive prosperity. We are proud to support this important initiative and hope you will join us.

Thank you,


Darrell is the Manager, Local Government & Civic Affairs at the Chamber of Commerce of Greater Philadelphia and a member of the PHL Neighborhood Growth Project.
