Signatures are now being collected on a petition asking for the creation of an Athens Civil Rights Committee. The petition will soon be delivered to the Athens-Clarke County Mayor and Commission. We are asking for the Athens Civil Rights Committee to serve as a Human Relations Commission, similar to ones found in Columbus, Georgia and Isabella County, Michigan, to help improve human relations in Athens through education, empowerment, and making recommendations to the Mayor and Commission.
You can learn more about what an Athens Civil Rights Committee would look like here.
