Dignidad Inmigrante En Athens held a protest on Sept. 26, 2020 at City Hall in response to allegations raised by a whistleblower complaint that female ICE detainees were given involuntary hysterectomies while in custody.
Members of DIA and the Athens community made speeches and read a list of demands. Speeches were made in Spanish and punctuated by English translations.
Organizers requested all participants socially distance except if they attended in household groups. Instead of chanting, protesters clapped to signal their approval of the demands stated.

Before a protest-filled summer, the position of Equity and Social Justice chair didn’t exist at Sigma Delta Tau, a predominantly Jewish sorority at the University of Georgia.
Vocal opponents of the ongoing movement for equality and racial justice must understand why change comes in the form of protest, and why the activism of younger generations will continue to turn the tide.
The University of Georgia always talks about doing better for marginalized communities, but never actually does better. Time and again, instead of addressing the root cause of the disease, the university addresses the symptoms. This cycle reeks of abuse.
