AFA of PA ACTION ALERT
SPECIAL NOTE: On May 31st Philadelphia City Council voted to evict the Cradle of Liberty Scout Council from the building they have used rent free since 1928. That is when the City Council commended the work of the Scouts and told them they could use the half acre of land ‘in pertuity’ or ‘forever.’ I guess ‘forever’ is 79 years!

q Lansdown community activist Kevin Lee says Glassman’s work in small towns such as Lansdowne is an effective way to advance the larger gay-rights movement.
NOTE: these ordinance changes are not necessary to be in compliance with the law. The job of the PA Human Relations Commission is to enforce the Pennsylvania Human Relations Act and the Pennsylvania Fair Educational Opportunities Act. Click here to read their Mission Statement.
