Protesters march through downtown Athens on Inauguration Day Jan. 20.

“Hundreds of concerned citizens” will travel to Greensboro Friday morning to “voice their opinions on current national issues and seek answers to questions surrounding the same issues,” according to the local activist group Athens for Everyone.

They’ll meet with staff members for Rep. Jody Hice (R-Monroe) and Republican Sens. David Perdue and Johnny Isakson from 10 a.m.–noon at the Greene County Government Office, 1034 Silver Drive.

“This event will provide space for constituents of the 10th Congressional District of Georgia and beyond to be heard as they express concern over the stance our representatives have taken on pressing national issues that will affect their constituents,” A4E says.

Smaller groups on Athens residents have traveled to similar meetings in Winder and Gibson recently.
