It is time for decent people in Philadelphia to step up and put an end to an environment of impunity in the Philadelphia District Attorney’s Office where perpetrators of misogyny, racism and homophobia continue to have the jurisdiction over the prosecution of crimes.
Women of City Council are going to have the Press conference to express solidarity with Phila NOW and join them in denouncing the dissemination of the misogynistic, racist and homophobic emails by prosecutors while in the AG’s Office (and continue to be employed in the Phila DA’s office) on November 12th at 9:15 a.m. in the 4th floor City Council Caucus Room. The resolution/solidarity statement by the Women of City Council will be available for all at the Press conference.
Philadelphia-NOW will announce the start of the online petition to demand removal of these prosecutors. Please share with your friends, family and colleagues, and invite as many people as possible to join us. We hope to have a great turnout to decry this untenable situation with no consequences thus far for the perpetrators.
Many thanks for your support,
Nina Ahmad, Ph.D.
President, Philadelphia Chapter of the National Organization for Women (NOW)
