Statement on DeSean Jackson: The anti-Semitic comments displayed by DeSean Jackson on his instagram are deeply offensive and disturbing. These words have been used for centuries to support the vilification and extermination of Jews. As a representative of our city, we call on DeSean Jackson to stop spreading hate and bigotry and to become better educated about anti-Semitism.

In an abundance of caution, we are postponing the annual Legends and Leaders event at the Kimmel Center, and are considering dates later this year. We look forward to bringing together leaders in our community for a networking and panel discussion with real estate’s best and brightest minds.
