UAC President & CEO, Sharmain Matlock-Turner, showed the Coalition’s support for the proposed Market 8 casino project during a press conference earlier this week. The Urban Affairs Coalition along with the Urban League of Philadelphia, NAACP, and the African American Chamber of Commerce discussed the benefits of the new project on the Philadelphia community.
