Philadelphia swim club accused of discrimination
Officials at a daycare accuse a club in Montgomery County of discriminating against the minority kids in their program.
They’re inner city children spending the summer in the basement of a Philadelphia elementary school.
But every Monday afternoon, they were supposed to get a welcome break at the Valley Club in Huntingdon Valley, where they’d get to swim for an hour and a half.
But after only one Monday, the plan derailed.
“I get a phone call from the board chair saying, you’re no longer going to be able to swim here,” Alethea Wright of Creative Steps, Inc.
