Cecily Harwitt
Cecily has been organizing across community, labor, and faith-based spaces for ten years, winning campaigns along the way for local hiring agreements, Fair Workweek, education equity, and higher wages. Originally from Los Angeles, she started her organizing career in Boston as a Jewish Organizing Initiative fellow and later moved to Philadelphia to help build POWER Interfaith. She is deeply committed to leadership development, since she knows that we will never win unless the people most directly impacted by the issues are leading our fights. She lives in West Philly with her family and is a proud mom, cat mom, and aunt.
