2011 "Hope and Unity" Rally reset for new date Monday, August 22 at the state capitol: Join Democratic Party of Georgia, its allies and residents as they fight GOP lies and the Republican Party painful state legislation that is hurting Georgia residents
(Atlanta, Georgia) - Georgia residents - and anyone – who are sick of right-wing legislation that is hurting state residents and their children are invited to the Hope & Unity Rally this month at the Georgia Capitol in Atlanta.
The "Hope & Unity Rally" will be held starting at 9 a.m. on the new date - Monday, August 22, 2011.
The rally date was changed from the middle of the August to the fourth Monday "due to Governor Deal’s restrictive policies regarding rallies at the State Capitol," organizers said.
This purpose of this "call-to-action" at the state capitol is to "unite Georgians that have been sidelined by our state’s republican legislation: policies that are against public education, against workers and anti-middle class," said Mike Berlon, chairman of the Democratic Party of Georgia.
The Democratic Party of Georgia is "partnering with several affiliate organizations for the Hope & Unity Rally at the Georgia Capitol," he said.
Organizers are hoping for a "good turnout for this event," Berlon said.
The Georgia State Capitol is located at 206 Washington Street in Atlanta.
