MADSA, WRFG, Atlanta Jobs with Justice, Rise Up, ATL Raise Up and other friends reached out to hundreds of festival-goers at the Many Rivers to Cross: a Festival of Music, Arts and Social Justice Festival’s “Social Justice Village” in Fairburn during the first weekend in October.
Daniel Hanley reported on “great experiences and conversations!. . .Organizing highlight: our DSA table spoke with so many Atlantans who pledged to participate Monday in the campaign to save Peachtree-Pine shelter. People were appalled by Kasim Reed’s attempt to displace hundreds of shelterless Atlantans and replace their beds with a SWAT command center. We also spoke with people from out of town, who are eager to get plugged in to work with DSA locals in their home regions.” Photos: Daniel Hanley
