JOIN THE JVP PHILLY CONTINGENT TO ADVOCATE FOR THIS RESOLUTION TO SUPPORT THE MUSLIM COMMUNITY
We will meet at 8:30am (CHANGED FROM 9:30 DUE TO SHIFT IN COUNCIL SCHEDULE) by the LOVE statue, and then head over to the City Council meeting that starts at 9am. We will provide "Stop Profiling Muslims" signs to hold in solidarity with our Muslim neighbors.
Introduced on December 8th of last year by Councilmember Helen Gym, and co-sponsored by Councilmember Curtis Jones, Jr., Resolution No. 161119 states that its purpose is:
“Upholding the City of Philadelphia’s support for and protection of Muslim communities, condemning violence and hate speech targeted towards Muslims, affirming the religious pluralism of the United States, and urging Philadelphia residents to stand in solidarity with our American Muslim communities - and all other communities - for peace and justice.”
If you can't make it, call your council member and let them know that you support this resolution!
