Hawks’ Lloyd Pierce to take part in march, rally Monday in Atlanta

Hawks coach Lloyd Pierce will join the Georgia NAACP on Monday in a downtown Atlanta march from the Richard B. Russell Federal Building to the Georgia State Capitol. 

The march and rally are planned “to address the issues of criminal legal reform, voting rights, ending police brutality and repealing citizen’s arrest,” the Hawks said in a news release Sunday afternoon. 

Pierce, a member of the National Basketball Coaches Association’s committee on racial injustice and reform, will speak during the rally, the release said. 

The march is scheduled to begin at 9 a.m. at 75 Spring St. SW.
