The event returned last year after a two-year hiatus. It featured accessibility advocate Austin Seraphin, one-time mayoral candidate Terry Gillen and investor Richard Vague, among others. Here’s our recap of the best speakers from TEDxPhiladelphia 2014.
While last year’s theme was “The New Workshop of the World,” this year’s is “And Justice for All” — the kicker of the Pledge of Allegiance.
“This exploration of access and equity will showcase great ideas for building a more just city,” TEDxPhiladelphia organizers wrote in an email.
