Atlanta, Georgia – August 6, 2015: Seniors at the senior community Friendship towers made their demands known as they battle Atlanta’s 90+ heat for over 2 months. Accompanied by various community leaders (Derrick Boazman, Senator Vincent Fort and others), seniors made it known that Friendship Baptist Church and GlassRatner should fix the horrible living issues or move them out. Notices were recently sent to seniors telling them that they were to leave their temporary living establishment, The Inns at Castleberry Hills, and go back to the towers. More protests are planned to demand justice for the seniors at the GlassRatner building and church services at Friendship Baptist Church in the coming days.
