October 4, 2016 - March for an Athens Civil Rights Committee

The Athens Anti-Discrimination Movement marched from the UGA Arch to City Hall where they started singing on the steps outside. We could be heard inside as the monthly Mayor and Commission meeting was taking place. Demonstrators continued inside the building and refused to be quiet until Mayor Denson put the Bar Admittance Ordinance back on the agenda for November.

Speakers indicated their thanks, but also that this is not enough. They demanded a more inclusive ordinance and also the creation of an Athens Civil Rights Committee.
