We exited the year the way we started – standing side by side with our partners demanding full and fair funding of our schools and building a better Philadelphia as a result. In December we worked with a coalition of business, civic and disability rights groups to demand that a pending sale of $75 million in new taxicab licenses go toward expanding wheelchair -accessible cabs, a taxi drivers relief fund, and the Philadelphia schools. It is currently designated solely for the coffers of the Philadelphia Parking Authority. Here we hold a December press conference with Ron Blount of the Philadelphia Taxiworkers Association (in photo), parent Susan Gobreski of Education Voters PA, Thomas Earle of Liberty Resources Inc. and Jerry Mondesire of the Philadelphia branch of the NAACP. This campaign will continue into 2014. (Photo: WHYY Newsworks)
