Since PMPA posted its original statement regarding the proposed Haunted Asylum at Pennhurst, it has become clear that some people do not understand our position. Our original statement attempted to cover what has been a long and complex process of negotiation with the owner of the Pennhurst property. That detracted from our intent.
To be clear, PMPA is completely opposed to the operation of a haunted attraction at Pennhurst that portrays people with disabilities in a demeaning and degrading fashion. Demonizing people with disabilities as a profit-making ‘entertainment’ is (and should be) offensive to everyone. We urge everyone who shares our disgust to speak out against the ‘haunted asylum’ and boycott this travesty.
Please consider signing the petition circulating against the Pennhurst Asylum Haunted Attraction.
