EPX Statement on racist and anti-Semitic graffiti

EPX Statement on racist and anti-Semitic graffiti

East Passyunk Crossing Civic Association strongly condemns the racist and anti-Semitic graffiti that was cravenly posted near our neighborhood. We know that this graffiti does not represent our neighborhood, and we will never abide by discrimination of any kind–race, religion, gender, sexual orientation, place of origin, ability, or other–in our neighborhood or our civic association. We stand committed against hate and to a vision of a diverse, tolerant, and safe home for all of our neighbors.

While the offending graffiti has already been reported to numerous agencies, please immediately report future incidents to the Philadelphia Commission on Human Relations at 215-686-4670, the Police Department, and to contact@epcrossing.org.
