Rain Or Shine We Will Fight!

Justice Cant Wait, We Need a Date! Mayor Bottoms, when will the jail officially close?

On June 10th, hundreds of people marched in the rain to demand the city DEFUND the Atlanta City Detention Center, close and DEMOLISH it by July 1st, and DEFEND BLACK LIVES by reinvesting in our communities. Not 2 hours after we left the streets, the City of Atlanta pledged to make an amendment to move the funds out of ACDC and into community-based initiatives, and officially wind down operation of the jail! But we have yet to see a date for the jail’s closure. So we are not done...Stay tuned...Sign up for upcoming news!
