Moral Mondays Come to Georgia

Hundreds of demonstrators turned up at the Georgia state capitol on Jan. 13 for the first Moral Monday event. They are protesting Gov. Nathan Deals' refusal to expand Medicaid under the Affordable Care Act, which Rep. John Lewis told BET.com could help more than 400,000 people, many of them children in urban and rural communities. He also believes the Moral Mondays in the South could one day spark a national movement.
