Petition to Remove Confederate Monument

HANOVER SQUARE BRUNSWICK, GA

 

COMMUNITY ALERTS

 

Dear Members,

 

The Mayor and Commissioners of the city of Brunswick have before them the important decision of whether or not to remove the statue in Hanover Square that stands as a monument to the confederacy that fought to overturn the union of the United States in order to preserve the horrendous institution of slavery.

It is crucial that we all urge the Mayor and Commission to do the right thing and remove the statue. The Abbott Institute Board has sent a letter [READ HERE] to do just that and we hope you will do the same.

 

ACT NOW

 

Please sign this petition http://chng.it/RP4jfsrkBQ

and email and/or call the Brunswick Mayor and Commissioners by no later than Wednesday, September 2.

 

Tell them we cannot overcome racism, heal the wounds of Ahmaud Arbery’s murder and become a united community while we continue to let a monument to the cruelty of slavery, lynching and Jim Crow segregation stand in our public space.

 

Many southern cities have defied state law to remove these monuments – the city of Brunswick should take that stand as well.
