Our Mission

Inform, Engage, Act

The Design Advocacy Group (DAG) is a public forum and advocate for design quality and equity in the planning, architecture, preservation and physical development of Philadelphia.

Philadelphia's 2026 Director Wants to Hear From You!

During his discussion with DAG on April 4, 2024, Michael Newmuis, the City's new 2026 Director, asked for ideas of activities and events, and for expertise: Michael is interested in matching volunteer professionals with organizations that have worthy projects or initiatives for 2026. 


Consistent with DAG's mission of advocating for design quality and equity in the planning, architecture, preservation, and physical development of Philadelphia, we are providing an opportunity for YOU to help the city prepare for 2026. Let us know of your interest by emailing the DAG Fellow at DAGFellow@gmail.com.


Next year, Michael will return to DAG with an update that might include you and your project!
