ATLANTA—Today, The State of Black Georgia and other community leaders are returning to the Georgia Capitol in response to the lawsuit Gov. Kemp filed against Atlanta Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms and the City Council.
The injunction seeks to restrain Mayor Bottoms from issuing press statements or speaking to the public regarding her mandate that all citizens wear masks in the fight against the COVID-19 pandemic.
The State of Black Georgia will go live at around 10 a.m., said Co-Covener Dee Dawkins-Haigler, former Georgia State Representative and State Rep. Sandra G. Scott, District 76.
“We’re encouraging the community to show their support and participation by watching live,” said Haigler. “The live stream can be found on my Facebook page.”
Haigler said the group will be remembering the late civil rights Leader C.T. Vivian, whose body will lie in state at the capitol today.
