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!
