Residents Advocate for Athens Civil Rights Committee

Twenty Athens residents showed up on Tuesday to the ACC Commission Agenda-Setting Session to advocate for an Athens Civil Rights Committee (ACRC) be added to the proposed Bar Admittance Ordinance.

Many Commissioners voiced support for an ACRC, which would make recommendations to the county, educate the community, and be a place of guidance when issues arise, but there was no concrete plan in place to implement it. Please, contact the Mayor & Commission and ask them to create an Athens Civil Rights Committee by using this form (it’s item #9).

The Commission will be voting on September 6. [youtube]
