“We are presently working with a number of civil rights/social justice organizations and we will share additional plans as appropriate,” the NAACP said.
The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported last week that Trump plans to attend the championship game between Georgia and Alabama. His decision led to changes in security and travel plans.
His visit comes almost exactly a year after Trump tweeted that Atlanta is "horrible" and "crime infested," drawing heavy pushback from several local officials.
In an appearance on MSNBC Sunday, Richard Rose, the president of the Atlanta NAACP chapter, referenced those comments and sent a message to Trump: if Atlanta is “so bad, don’t come,” he said.
The NAACP said protesters should wave white towels to mock the title of “snowflake” often bestowed on Trump’s critics.
The teams' head coaches shared their thoughts before the big game.
