Rev. Terry Davis and other Northwest members participated today in Social Justice action by Standing on the Side of Love at a rally at the Georgia Capitol.  The demonstration was held to protest the legislature’s consideration of SB 129, the Religious Freedom Restoration Act.  The bill is widely seen as an attempt to legalize discrimination in Georgia focused primarily at the LGBT community.
