Lancaster Plans 2 Rallies to Save County Human Relations Commission

This communication originated with and was sent by Adanjesus Marin, Executive Board Member, SEIU Healthcare Pa and Chair, Human Relations Commission, City Of Lancaster

It is hard to imagine what Commissioners Martin and Stuckey expected to happen when they proposed to threaten the Civil Rights of all the residents of Lancaster County by eliminating the Lancaster County Human Relations Commission. What that threat has provoked, is the coming together of the broadest possible coalition in defense of Civil Rights. Their threat to everyone’s Civil Rights has served to foster tremendous unity.

This list is still in formation and we expect to be able to announce a number of other key partners tomorrow. It is with great pleasure that we would like to inform you of some of the organizations which have united in the Committee to Defend Civil Rights in Lancaster County:
ACLU of Pennsylvania
Congregation Shaarai Shomayim
Equality Pa
Crispus Attucks Community Center
Governor’s Advisory Commission on Latino Affairs
Lancaster City Human Relations Commission Board
Lancaster City Human Relations Commission
Lancaster Coalition for Peace and Justice
Lancaster County Council of Churches
Lancaster County Democratic Committee
Lancaster LGBT Organizing Committee
SEIU Healthcare Pennsylvania
Vision of Hope MCC

We would also like to announce the partial list of speakers for the 7/29 Unity Rally (we will have the speakers list for the 7/24 rally in the next day or so):

Cobbie Burns, President Lancaster NAACP*
Norman Britol-Colon, Executive Director, Governor’s Advisory Council on Latino Affairs
Louise Williams, President Lancaster City Council*
Rev. Randy Riggs
Pastor Lou Butcher
Stephen A. Glassman, Chairperson, Pennsylvania Human Relations Commission

In order to make the Unity Rallies successful there is much to be done. Please find attached a .pdf of the rally flier, which is ideal for blasting to your list, please let us know if you would like copies of the flyer to distribute. If you would like to volunteer to promote the Unity Rallies please email: pnsayko@gmail.com . If you would like to volunteer to be a marshal at either rally, please email: dt@seiupa.org . If you would like to add your organization to the list of endorsers, or to request a pdf of the flyer advertising the Unity Rallies, please email: marina@seiuhealthcarepa.org .

In Solidarity,
