URGENT: today’s rally is cancelled.
From Ruth Demeter, FCDP Chair:
Out of an abundance of concern for the health and safety of our citizens, we are cancelling today’s rally, at the recommendation of the Democratic Party of Georgia.
We have been informed that a large militia presence is expected in Rome today due to Trump’s visit. Additionally, we are not able to secure police presence for our event because of the airport rally.
Stay safe and continue practicing COVID-19 prevention protocols. Exercise your democratic rights. If you have an absentee ballot, be sure to deliver it personally to a dropbox in your county before the end of election day.
On behalf of the Floyd County Democratic Party, I promise you we will continue to work for democracy- we just won’t be standing outside city hall this afternoon to do it.
