That may take a more tangible form on Monday, when representatives from several local groups plan to hold a press conference to present their “demands” to the restaurant chain. Local attorney and activist Gerald Griggs said a coalition including March for Our Lives, the Georgia Alliance for Social Justice and the NAACP is organizing the event.
The press conference is scheduled to be held at Waffle House’s corporate headquarters in Norcross.
It was not immediately clear what the groups’ demands might be.
The protest will also come a few days after Waffle House confirmed it was investigating the circumstances surrounding a separate incident at a location in Pinson, Alabama, where a black woman says she was denied service because of her race.
Waffle House’s corporate office was closed Sunday, and representatives could not immediately be reached by The Atlanta Journal-Constitution. The restaurant has previously defended police intervention in the Clemons incident.
