An Open Letter – We Will Not Tolerate Hate Speech

We condemn and renounce any and all expressions of hatred and discrimination based on race, gender identity, sexual orientation, creed or religion that have occurred in conjunction with or as a result of our walk in Philadelphia, or any of the other walks around the world. We would especially like to disclaim the racism exhibited in the sign carried by the person who walked in SlutWalk NYC, which bore the John Lennon and Yoko Ono song title “Woman is the Nigger of the World.”

For Immediate Release We Will Not Tolerate Hate Speech
