Protest Still on for Today

This morning Mayor Curtis, in a letter to the city council, withdrew the administration's support of the proposed ordinance for daytime curfew.

We are thankful for the mayor's willingness to consider the concerns of his electorate and seek a different avenue to address the city's truancy and gang problems.

However, it is more important now than ever that the protest that activity for the council meeting tonight remain on track. We have momentum now, and we have media coverage of the protest scheduled. The measure is still on the agenda for the Council Meeting this evening. This will not be the last attempt address truancy and gang violence and we need to get our message out that requiring citizens to carry ID to prove they have the right to remain in a public place is WRONG!

Please get the word out that this protest is still on and that it is more important now than ever.
