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.
