This past Friday over 40 Decatur, GA community residents came out in the pouring rain to tell the world they value strong communities, good jobs, safe roads and local businesses. Decatur community members stood at the six road intersection near suburban plaza with signs and good spirits. Community members are quickly mobilizing to develop a strategy to keep out the poverty spawning behemoth: Walmart.
The Decatur community and allies will be out again this Friday January 27th, 4:30-5:30 pm at the intersection of N. Decatur and Scott Boulevard in Decatur, GA. Come join !
