Amanda McIllmurray

Philadelphia City Council, At-Large

Amanda will be one of the first out LGBTQ+ people elected to the Philadelphia City Council!


Amanda McIllmurray is a lifelong Philadelphian, working class queer woman, the daughter of union members, and an organizer running for City Council At Large. She’s running for City Council At Large to win good jobs, safe schools, affordable housing and holistic approaches to community safety for all our neighbors. When elected, she’ll be the first openly queer Council Member ever and the youngest member of council. As an organizer, Amanda fought to give working people a say in what happens in our communities. She co-founded Reclaim Philadelphia to put political power into the hands of our neighbors. She ran the campaigns of Senator Nikil Saval and Representative Elizabeth Fiedler because with organizers in office we see different priorities and better outcomes for all of us. She’s ready to continue her work and bring her winning record to Philadelphia’s City Council.
