Update: A previous version of this article said Georgia’s Attorney General Chris Carr would attend the event. After the story published online, his office called to say Carr wouldn’t be attending. Carr’s office said his schedule had changed because of President Donald Trump’s visit to Atlanta that day. Carr’s absence was not posted on any of the event listings.
