Last January, Trump and his administration tried to ban Muslims from entering into the United States. Over seven thousand strong, the City of Atlanta and Georgia stood in solidarity with those impacted, and we will do it again if the Supreme Court upholds this racist and Islamophobic ban.
This is an ON-CALL protest as we await the decision expected in mid-to-late June. We will gather at 6 pm in front of the Richard B. Russell Federal Bldg (75 Ted Turner Drive, SW Atlanta, GA 30303) the day the decision comes down.
