Activists to Push Marsy’s Law for Georgia at Capitol Tomorrow 

More than 300 victims’ rights advocates will come to the Capitol Thursday to encourage their legislators to pass Marsy’s Law for Georgia, which would elevate victims’ rights to the state constitution. Marsy’s Law passed the Senate last session and now awaits House passage before going to voters at the next general election.

Marsy’s Law state director Ann Casas and victim advocates will be available upon request for interviews at 10:30 a.m. in the South Wing of the Capitol. Victims will provide their own stories that illustrate the need for Marsy’s Law for Georgia. Please respond to this email to schedule an interview or photo of activists, who will all wear purple Marsy’s Law T-shirts. 

WHEN: Thursday, Feb. 1, at 10:30 a.m. 

WHERE: South Wing of Capitol

Marsy’s Law for Georgia is sponsored by Sen. John Kennedy (R-Macon).

Georgia is one of only 14 states that don’t have victims’ rights in its constitution, and voters in Oklahoma, Nevada, Wisconsin, and Kentucky are set to approve Marsy’s Law for their states this year.
