Rep. Seth Rose is submitting a resolution to remove the Tillman statue now, but the earliest South Carolina’s lawmakers can debate the issue is next session, which starts on January 12. This protest on that same day will let our representatives know the intervening days have not cooled our anger over the Tillman statue.
- Tuesday, January 12 between 11:00am and 1:00pm
- Protesters will march in a loop around the state house
