Heinz Hall listened.
Petition creator Diana Fletcher and 2,235 other supporters were able to convince the 2,676 seat venue to squash plans for the event to be held in Pittsburgh. Here’s the update:
Feb 11, 2015 — Thank you so much for your support! Today Heinz Hall announced that the Bill Cosby appearance scheduled for February 21st has been canceled. Your signatures, comments and all of your help worked wonders! The women he assaulted and all victims of assault now know that people ARE listening and that we do care! Please continue to support other petitions, including Sandy Campbell’s petition to prevent his appearance in June. Read and sign here. Again, thank you so much! -Diana Fletcher
