“Hands Around the Capitol” Event in Augusta Cancelled

AUGUSTA---The “Hands Around the Capitol” event scheduled for Saturday, January 23, has been cancelled due to safety concerns.

The event in Augusta has been held annually for 47 years since the 1973 U.S. Supreme Court Roe v. Wade decision, which legalized abortion. Participants rally, march, and encircle the statehouse to pray that all will come to realize the value of human life from conception to natural death.
