QUOTE

“In my lifetime Georgia has advanced from a state that divided white and black citizens through strict racial segregation to a state that could host the Centennial Olympic Games and welcome people of all races, creeds and colors. This legislation would deny Georgia’s students the fullness of that story. I want my granddaughter and all Georgia’s school children to love their country and to love the truth. You can’t love one without the other,” said Andrea Young, executive director of the ACLU of Georgia.
