Atlanta, GA. - On Saturday May 16, 2020 at 7:30AM, JustGeorgia will lead a Justice Caravan from Atlanta to Brunswick to protest the murder of Ahmaud Arbery from Victory Outreach Church, 2175 Metropolitan Pkwy SW Atlanta, Ga 30315
The group will join with citizens of Brunswick, Savannah, and the surrounding areas for a Rally in Brunswick at 2pm at the Glynn County Courthouse, 701 H Street Brunswick, Ga, 31520,
The focus of the “We are NOT Satisfied” Rally is to demand the resignation of District Attorneys Jackie Johnson and George Barnhill for the mishandling of the prosecution of the individuals responsible for Ahmaud Arbery’s death.
All participants are encouraged to wear masks and gloves and engage in social distancing throughout the Caravan and Rally.
“An arrest of the killers is not enough and we refuse to believe that the system that allowed this family to suffer without an arrest should remain intact. They system must be held accountable” Former Atlanta City Councilman, Derrick Boazman of Let Us Make Man
“We find comfort in knowing that justice-seeking people all over Georgia believe that we have the will and resources to demand safety for all communities. Through working collaboratively we can address the criminalization of black communities that ultimately caused Ahmaud Arbery to be killed.”
