The Philadelphia Neighborhood Alliance (PNA) is a coalition of twenty-seven groups representing over 300,000+ Philadelphians joined in an effort to protect our communities and support responsible development within our city. PNA is not anti casino. However, the Alliance universally supports the resiting of Foxwoods and Sugarhouse Casinos because we believe casinos do not belong in anyone’s neighborhood.
PNA continues to fight for a minimum standard of casino development to be 1500 feet from neighborhoods. We acknowledge that as long as the siting of the two casinos remain at their current location, there will never be a hospitable environment for this development. We recognize that securing this minimum standard at the political level while informing and educating our communities are our immediate goals.
PNA believes that the residents of Philadelphia are viable parties in the future development of our city and should not be denied the right of self-determination by a state commission in an issue that will profoundly affect their personal assets, livelihoods and their future as residents of this city.
Here are some actions you can take to get involved:
- Contact your State Senator, Representative, Mayor and City Councilmembers to let them know how you feel.
- Join your neighborhood civic association and help the Alliance reach out to more Philadelphians.
- Make a donation to the Philadelphia Neighborhood Alliance. We will apply all donations to our outreach and legal efforts.
- Contact the Alliance if you would like to become more involved.
