Yesterday, the CIW's Return to Human Rights Tour spent a full and meaningful day in Atlanta, Georgia. On Day 2 of the tour, participants immersed themselves in the city's rich legacy within the American civil rights movement and joined forces with allies from across the Georgia to continue writing history in the long struggle for freedom and human rights. That is, in the words of Atlanta's Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., to continue bending the arc of the moral universe toward justice.
After visiting Atlanta's Center for Civil and Human Rights in the morning, and connecting with old and new supporters at Berea Mennonite Church, Emory University, and Grace United Methodist Church, the tour crew headed to Wendy's for a strong, evening rush hour picket outside Wendy's in the heart of the city.
