A call for organization in Philadelphia, speaking to the working class members of society who may not be radicalized. Arguments for seizing control of one’s position through workplace organization, education reform, women’s rights, and more. Their goal as stated: “What we want is not a bureaucratic nationalized super-industrial super-state but a self-managed society run by integrated workers councils utilizing a technology in harmony with human needs and the environment.” The flyer also includes a mail-in sheet to get involved and to receive the groups’ newsletter, Solidarity Newsletter. Members of Philadelphia Solidarity would go on to form Wooden Shoe bookstore in Philadelphia.
