Thank You SF Supervisor Avalos
Update on attacks on American Muslim for Palestine (AMP)'s San Francisco bus ads.
American Muslims for Palestine (AMP), the Asian Law Caucus, Jewish Voice for Peace, and the San Francisco Bay Area office of CAIR thank San Francisco Supervisor John Avalos for his courageous position in defense of free speech. Last week the Supervisor wrote to the San Francisco Municipal Authority, disagreeing with a previous letter sent by his colleagues which sought to equate ads placed by AMP on Munis buses with hate speech. Supervisor Avalos clearly distinguished AMP’s core political speech from hate speech, and encouraged SFMTA to leave open Muni buses as a forum for all speech. Read the full letter here.
