Saturday’s event is a demonstration of unity, joining the national movement to demand justice in the shooting death of Ahmaud Arbery. 

In an official statement received by CW39, organizers say

Over 50 Slab Riders are expected to participate in this protest against ‘hate motivated violence and injustice within the system towards minorities. Riders will drive two complete symbolic loops around Loop 610, in commemoration of the 2 mile run Ahmaud made before being murdered by Greg and Travis McMichael.  Elected officials and faith leaders will join the protest.
