Don’t Let Hateful Ku Klux Klan Adopt a Highway

kkk-by-ninian-reid

Target: Chief Judge Sarah L. Doyle of the Georgia Appellate Courts

Goal: Don’t let the racist and hateful Ku Klux Klan adopt a highway and continue to spread terror.

The Georgia Court of Appeals will soon decide whether or not the state of Georgia can block the Ku Klux Klan from adopting a highway. The state blocked the hate group’s request in the past, so now the American Civil Liberties Union is filing a lawsuit against the state claiming that it is violating the KKK’s free speech rights.

However, the state argues that the adopt a highway program is for “civic-minded organizations,” not disgusting hate groups like the KKK. The state also cites that public safety played a role in its decision, and that promoting an organization with a history of inciting hateful unrest is not what Georgia wants to be known for.

The state’s legal brief said, “Erecting an [Adopt-A-Highway] Program sign with the KKK’s name on it would have the effect of erecting a sign announcing that ‘the State of Georgia has declared this area Klan Country.'”

Amidst all the racist violence the country has been experiencing lately, we can not let these terrorists win this. Urge the court to deny the KKK the privilege of adopting a highway.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Chief Judge Sarah L. Doyle,

Your court will soon decide whether or not the state of Georgia can block the Ku Klux Klan from adopting a highway. The state argues that the adopt a highway program is for “civic-minded organizations,” not disgusting hate groups like the KKK. The state also cites that public safety played a role in its decision, and that promoting an organization with a history of inciting hateful unrest is not what Georgia wants to be known for.

Amidst all the racist violence the country has been experiencing lately, we can not let these terrorists win this. I urge you and the rest of the court to deny the KKK the privilege of adopting a highway.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]
