"I decided to make Girls Auto Clinic not just a safe space for women drivers, but a safe space for women who want to work in this industry."
Patrice Banks is empowering women one car at a time, in one of the most male oriented industries. After studying engineering and working at a chemical company, Patrice surveyed women online about services they had to pay men for. She discovered that many women feel self-conscious or taken advantage of when they have to take care of their cars, so she decided to open her own all-women auto body shop in Philadelphia. Patrice created this safe space not only for her customers, who have the chance to learn at her workshops and hang out (and get their nails done!) while their cars are being fixed, but also for her workers, who’ve found a healthy environment and support to do their job.
Check out Patrice’s full story on our Facebook. Link in bio.
That’s a wrap on our annual Take and Bake Pie Workshop! C-CAP Alum @lesliebunny taught students how to make a double crust apple pie at @freelibrarycook. Our students now have pies to bring home and bake for Thanksgiving!
Alshon Jeffery said winning a championship in Philly is more important to him than his stats. He also went on to say he wants to re-sign with the Eagles and stay for years to come. Every week it seems that his chemistry with Wentz is increasing, and Jeffery is making many great catches that the Eagles did not have last year. Alshon is one of the heart and souls of this team and he is a huge reason why we’re 9-1.
Gota love social media. I had posted earlier that I paid but the machine ran out of tickets. So I used another machine. I had tagged the philly parking IG.
I return a few hours later and saw this.
Too late now. You got my money thrice.

I have 3 offices with plenty of tables that you all can sit at all year around and we can figure out ways to eat together. I can’t stand by and watch our people suffer in this economy knowing that we control the majority of the buying power in this country but spending on all the wrong things. Let’s really create legacies that our families can live off and not just memories and debt that we’re leaving behind. My goals are as follows•
1) Financially educate 100 black families on how to become financial independent/free•
2) Incorporate 100 Black owned businesses•
3) Help 100 men get off the streets and into jobs•
4) Get 100 black families to become homeowners for the first time•
5) Assist 100 black people with credit repair to get their credit score over 700•
6) Establish an annual business competition for different age groups to showcase their creativity and business skills to investors•
