NAACP Ad Denied By The City of Philadelphia

I believe it deserves to be seen. Pass it on if you do too.

From a fall article about the city of Philadelphia’s refusal to run this ad:

When asked whether such a billboard would be appropriate for first-time visitors to the city, [Robert Brooks, director of the NAACP’s criminal-justice program] said, “Absolutely.”

“We are a country that locks up more people than any other country in the world, and if I was traveling somewhere, I would want to know that when I get there,” he said.

The website advertised on the billboard is here. A petition to sign and send to your governor requesting that education become a greater priority than incarceration is here.
