MLK parade to affect downtown Savannah traffic

When Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. helped organize the Montgomery Bus Boycott he was not hoping to win a Nobel Peace Prize

Arlington's special events ordinance requires a permit for parades on public streets, public parks or other outdoor spaces owned by the city, and organizers are required to pay the costs of covering costs for traffic management and event security. Jay Warren, the Marketing and Communications manager for the city says the decision will not be reconsidered.

Organizers appealed the denial of the permit Friday, but were denied again. They contend that Abbott's record of supporting a state voter ID law, threatening to withhold funding from sanctuary cities and support for legislative redistricting is antithetical to the legacy of the civil rights leader.

"Arlington is a city that is certainly used to special events, but this is a very tight timeline", Warren said.

"We were concerned about what this looked like, the black eye it would give the community to have the NAACP protesting an event named after Martin Luther King on Martin Luther King Day", she said. "We do not endorse this scheduled event".

"So this didn't come about until every news station in the Metroplex covered this, and if every station in the Metroplex didn't cover this, I don't think we would be here", Hood said.

That Thursday night from Arlington citing a failure to meet requirements dealing with event planning and security. "The step right now is just reviewing the appeal".
