Help Us Build Philly's Urbanist Political Movement. Become a 5th Square Member.

We're working toward a Philadelphia that lives up to its legacy as the first planned city in America by supporting champions of forward-thinking transportation and land use planning for elected office.

One of the best ways to help us scale this movement is with a recurring monthly contribution. 

Our team is 100% volunteer, and since we started working in winter 2015, we've already begun to see results. The political conversation is changing, and there is a growing drumbeat for Philadelphia's leaders to deliver on the promise of a walkable, bikeable, transit-rich city with abundant housing for all.

We keep you informed about what's happening, who can fix it, and where there are opportunities to take action in your neighborhood and beyond. We also vet candidates on the causes you care about, so you can advance those issues in the voting booth. 

Voting for better politicians isn't enough. When you support 5th Square, you send an added message to elected officials that Philadelphia deserves better planning and design, safer streets, and affordable living, and you expect them to deliver. We're gearing up for the 2018 state legislative elections and will be donating to candidates who will champion our community's priorities in office. 

Help us grow Philly's urbanist political movement by becoming a member. Sign up for a monthly contribution of $5, $25, or $50.

Membership comes with:

  • Voting eligibility on our slate of candidate endorsements
  • Access to 5th Square's Slack channel
  • Access to members-only events and briefings
  • Advance registration opportunities for events
