Our Work

From underfunded schools that scrounge for funds for copy paper to the highest poverty and obesity rates among big cities in the US, Philly faces some dire challenges in confronting education and food injustices. Repair the World: Philadelphia partners with local and community-based organizations like the West Philadelphia Alliance for Children and Broad Street Ministry as it seeks to build a kinder and more equitable city.

At Albany, she was an active member of the co-ed community service fraternity Alpha Phi Omega and editor of the Circle K community service club newsletter. If you couldn't tell, service is kind of her favorite thing. Additionally, she loves running, reading, sarcasm, and getting carried away on feminist rants.   As a first year fellow, Bridget managed the Philly Farm Crew, one of Philly’s big, ongoing food justice programs.  She enjoyed building relationships with the volunteers and farmers, and promoting a sense of community.  As a Team Leader, she hopes to encourage the same kind of personal growth she experienced as a first year fellow.
