American Civil Liberties Union investigates a denied peaceful protest request

Posted: Updated:

The American Civil Liberties Union is investigating a peaceful protest request, that has been denied by the Gering Police Department.

On April 22nd, 200 counties across the U.S. will participate in the March Against Child Abuse, in front of court houses as well as state capitols.

A panhandle M.A.C.A Organizer, Jody Radomski contacted Gering Police to let them know about the rally.

Only to receive a phone call back from the Chief, saying they could not have the march on the sidewalk outside the Gering Court House.

The City of Scottsbluff told Radomski she would need to buy liability insurance for the sidewalk and a permit.

The M.A.C.A is a nonprofit organization, with no funds for peaceful rallies.

Radomski says that's what prompted the American Civil Liberties Union to get involved.

"To get awareness out to the public and also to the children that are old enough to speak for themselves that it's okay to speak up about child abuse," Radomski said.  

The Gering Police were not available to comment.
