GUEST: NAACP talks about Jailed for Justice

COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) - On August 11, several community organizations and leaders will get together at the City Services Center to demand what they call "government policies and legislation that work for every Georgian".

Nate Sanderson, President of the Columbus N.A.A.C.P., and member Howard Mingo tell us more.

On Monday, members from different organizations will meet at the City Services Center at 6 p.m. to talk about some big issues facing our community. However, participants are encouraged to arrive at 5 p.m. to participate in interviews. Moral Monday started back in 2009 in North Carolina as a series of protest against the government, and has spread to parts of Georgia and South Carolina.

The Jailed for Justice tour will arrive in 16 different cities, including Columbus. Four members who were arrested for protesting at the Georgia capital will be present.
