Nutter supports NAACP rally


Mayor Michael Nutter on Monday threw his support behind an Oct. 2 rally in Washington, D.C., where marchers will demand legislation to create jobs and expand resources for public education.

Nutter will not be able to attend the rally because of a scheduling conflict but says he hopes it will help solve the problem of unemployment and related ills that he and other Philadelphians see daily.

"We seem to have the resources to help everyone else around the world, and that's a part of our humanity. I get that," the Mayor said at a news conference. "But as they say, charity begins at home." - Miriam Hill
