2021 Citizens of the Year
By The Philadelphia Citizen | December 29, 2021
Stoneleigh Fellow Ruth Abaya is one of The Philadelphia Citizen’s 2021 Citizens of the Year.
We entered 2021 much as we leave it: Uncertain what the next few months will bring, hopeful that we are turning a corner on the epidemics we face, prepared to adapt and jump into the fray whenever and however we’re needed.
Because that’s another thing that has remained consistent this year: Philadelphians from all corners of our city came out to support one another, nourishing our bodies and our spirits, and reaffirming what we love most about Philly—citizens who are committed to making it a better place for all of us.
