NPLS Statement on Systemic Racism

As a part of the Pennsylvania Legal Aid Network (PLAN), North Penn Legal Services supports PLAN’s June 2, 2020 “Call to Action on Systemic Racism.” NPLS sees firsthand the continuing problems that people living in poverty, and especially communities of color, experience in the struggle to obtain equal justice. We are committed to confronting systemic and institutional racism, within our communities and within our program. Racism creates countless barriers to employment, fair housing, healthcare, and other basic necessities of life. These barriers to justice are literally killing people, and we in the legal community all bear a responsibility to protect the vulnerable and work towards eliminating all forms of racism and inequality.
