They are inviting members of the community to join faculty, their fellow students, and others in taking part. Organizer Mallory Harris says they also want like-minded citizens to take action.

“So the most effective thing you can do is text VETO to 644-33, and then follow the steps,” Harris said. “It’ll tell you text callback and then it’ll give you a script it takes less than a minute, You just say your name and you’re a Georgia resident and you oppose guns on campus. You can do it everyday and they are keeping a tally at the Governor’s office.”

The rally is scheduled for 5 pm. Harris says other schools have held similar protests around the state.
