Now that the PES oil refinery has been shut down for good, the biggest challenge is safely transforming the site to a clean, green space for the community. The Right to Thrive campaign will ensure that the residents whose lives were impacted by refinery pollution will remain at the center of all planning and decisions about clean-up and a just transition. Follow Philly Thrive on social media to get involved! If you are a resident of zip codes 19145 or 19146, you can also fill out this Story of Place survey about the impact of the refinery and redevelopment on your neighborhood.
