Elected officials who spoke included the city’s mayor, Lori Henry, and U.S. Rep. Lucy McBath, a Democrat who represents the area. Her son, Jordan, was shot and killed 2012 in what she called a racially-motivated incident.
“We must be fully committed, not fair-weathered (to change),” McBath told the crowd.
Roswell resident Karen Bevan, 67, came Saturday after hearing about it on Facebook.
“I just want to be here to demand in a peaceful way,” she said.
