Support the Archives. Save the Seven. A rally in support of the Georgia Archives will be held on Wednesday, Oct. 3 at noon in the rotunda of the State Capitol. Although Gov. Nathan Deal announced on Sept. 19 that he would find the funding to keep the Archives open, no details have been announced. The Archives is still scheduled to close to the public on Nov. 1
The rally also will highlight the need to reinstate seven employees whose termination was announced by Secretary of State Brian Kemp. The termination will be final of Nov. 1 If this action is allowed to stand, irreplaceable knowledge and experience will be lost.
Supporters of the Archives and the employees are encouraged to attend. Please note that placards are not allowed inside the Capitol.
