VOX spread out along the route of Atlanta March for Social Justice & Women — from the Center for Civil and Human Rights to the Georgia state capital building. Here we present a variety of stories of youth, their protests and hopes.
I asked young people holding pro-LGBTQ signs or chanting the LGBTQ slogans “What do you think Donald Trump will do for LGBTQ rights in America?” Here’s what they had to say.
This peaceful protest, which included a march from the Center for Civil & Human Rights to the Liberty Plaza at the Georgia state capitol, was a time for people of all kinds to come out, look beyond their differences, and make their voices heard about various human rights.
