We’re here at the @Ctr4CHR joining the @NAACPGA, @NAACPAtlanta, @NationalSCLC and several other orgs ahead of the Georgia General Assembly calling for necessary, long overdue change—that begins with the takedown of Confederate monuments throughout the South.
There are 159 counties in Georgia. Ninety-two of them have Confederate monuments.
“This is a momentous occasion, but this is just the beginning.

“We cannot have a united country until we remove the symbols that divided this country.” —First Vice President of @NAACPAtlanta Gerald Griggs
“More often than not, hate is born out of ignorance, and knowledge is power.”

@22squared unveils Invisible Hate, a new interactive tool that uses augmented reality technology to inform passersby of the history behind Confederate monuments.
“This isn’t just the good fight. This is the right fight.

“And when you’re in the right fight... you have to be willing to mount up with wings like eagles and soar for [truth, justice and righteousness].” — Rev. Tim McDonald III of the @cbcatl
