 The US Human Rights Network announced it will move its 2011 national conference outside the state of Georgia if Gov. Nathan Deal signs the controversial anti-immigration bill HB 87. The law, which mirrors legislation passed in Arizona last year, was passed by the General Assembly this April and awaits the governor's approval. The Atlanta-based network of more than 300 organizations from around the country is scheduled to hold its 600-person conference in December in Atlanta. Formal steps to identify an alternate conference location will begin when Gov. Deal signs the measure, which he has indicated he will do.
