After a weekend of protests and riots sparked by the killing of George Floyd, hundreds of Christians and hip-hop artist Lecrae gathered in Atlanta to call on churches and government leaders to ensure fair treatment and an end to racially-motivated crimes.  

Additionally, leaders also announced plans for a “March on Atlanta” that will take place in just over two weeks. 

The OneRace Movement, a Christian coalition that exists to “displace the spirit of racism and release a movement of racial reconciliation across Atlanta, the Southeast, and the nation,” held a news conference at Liberty Plaza outside the state capitol building in downtown Atlanta Monday.
