Across America, we’ve seen a growing movement resisting federal indefinite detention at both the state and local level. You have the power to introduce this grassroots uprising to the Peach State and protect your fellow Georgians from the specter of federal kidnapping.
You don’t have to sit around and wait for the state to take action. You can help stop indefinite detention, right now, today, while simultaneously putting pressure on lawmakers in Atlanta to do the right thing next fall.
While the Georgia legislature has failed to interpose so far, government bodies at the local level can step into the fray. Counties and cities can refuse to assist any federal attempts at indefinite detention in their jurisdictions. These measures will not only provide practical protections for their citizens, they will send a strong message to state capitals and put the pressure on to nullify federal kidnapping at the state level in the next legislative session.
It’s going to take work to ensure that this is how things play out. Here’s what you can start doing right now.
