UPDATE: We've had questions about physical donations (in-kind donations). The organizers have decided it would be too complicated to organize drives for all the awesome, wonderful groups who deserve and need items right now. However, we are fully supportive of those interested reaching out to the orgs above to see what they need and independently organizing a time to drop off items with them - whether at the rally or at other times. Please feel free to learn more about the 5 resettlement agencies and all of these great service orgs and their needs.

Date: Saturday, February 4, 2017
Time: 12 noon - 3pm
Venue: Lutheran Church of the Redeemer, 731 Peachtree St NE, Atlanta, GA 30308
Since it is on a MARTA route, we are highly encouraging folks to use MARTA. The closest stop is the North Ave station and its only two blocks away!
