This resolution is about fundamentally stating a public declaration that R. Kelly and sexual predators like him don’t belong in a public sphere, with public support. This symbolic act of solidarity puts all sexual predators on notice.

The city of Philadelphia has expounded their power to declare their disapproval of singer R. Kelly’s actions in the past. On Thursday afternoon, the Philadelphia City Council voted unanimously in support of Gym’s “Mute R. Kelly” resolution. Commenting on the significance of the bill’s passage, the councilwoman tweeted, “We reject a system that silences black women and accepts black pain. We believe survivors. R. Kelly is not welcome in Philadelphia. This symbolic act of solidarity puts all sexual predators on notice.”
