The event has been organized and sponsored by Jewish Voices for Peace-Atlanta, Black Lives Matter-Atlanta, the Georgia chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR Georgia) and 10 other local groups.
Edward Mitchell, executive director of CAIR Georgia, says the protest will remain peaceful, and no counter protests are expected.
Sponsors and protesters will also call for an end to the Georgia Law Enforcement Exchange Program, which sends Georgia police overseas to receive training from foreign governments, including Israel.

Multiple activists are scheduled to speak during the event, including Dr. Ilise Cohen of Jewish Voices for Peace-Atlanta and Rev. Fahed Abu-Akel, a Palestinian Christian and the first Arab-American to be elected to lead the Presbyterian Church USA.
President Trump’s decision to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel has sparked previous protests in Atlanta, including last year’s “Atlanta In Solidarity with Palestine” event which bought together more than 700 Georgia activists in July.
Mitchell predicts today’s protest will also garner hundreds of protesters.
An Atlanta Journal-Constitution reporter and photographer will be covering the protest Tuesday evening.
