“Whites Only” Pool in 2009? Condemn Discrimination at the Valley Club

By Jorge Rivas Jul 10, 2009

via Color of Change Condemn discrimination at the Valley Club and ask the DOJ to enforce civil rights laws Sixty-five children from a largely Black summer camp in Philadelphia were turned away from a swimming club in the suburbs because of their race. The camp had a contract to use the Valley Club’s pool for the summer. Once the club realized the kids were Black, it canceled their membership. A "Whites only" pool in 2009 should not be tolerated. Please join us in publicly condemning the Valley Club’s discrimination, and calling on the Justice Department to investigate whether the club violated federal civil rights laws.
