Written by  Monday, 04 August 2014 09:57

Dr. Francys JohnsonDr. Francys Johnson  During the last session of the Georgia General Assembly, about 80 people were arrested in Moral Monday protests at the state capitol in Atlanta.  Several of those arrested are expected to be in Statesboro today as part of a “Jailed for Justice” tour.  The mass meeting sponsored by the NAACP will get underway at 6:30 on the steps of the Bulloch County Courthouse. 

 

  The Reverend Dr. Francys Johnson, NAACP Georgia State Conference president, who among those arrested, said the Moral Monday Georgia coalition will stop in a total of 16 cities during the tour.  The goal is to change “the political discourse…the political outcomes (and reorganize) the priorities of this state.”

 

  He said the Moral Monday Georgia movement is nonpartisan but is aiming to influence the elections in November and the 2015 legislature session.

 

  Johnson is an attorney and minister based in Statesboro.

 

  Others expected to attend tonight’s meeting are Tim Franzen, Megan Harrison and

 

Jackie Rodriguez.
