On June 5th, Pentacost Sunday, a few activists visited the Kairos Church
on Riverside Drive in Atlanta, GA. The occassion of this visit was to
bring awareness to the congregation that their fellow congregant,
Michael Keller, is engaged in unconscionable destruction of His Creation
for his role as Regional Pre-Construction Director in Brasfield &
Gorrie, the general contractor of the Atlanta Police Foundation’s
unpopular “Cop City” project in southeast Atlanta. Michael Keller and
his wife Mary Stansfield Keller appear to be devout believers, which is
why we visited the church with fliers, rather than simply their private
residence at 2325 Dellwood Dr NW, Atlanta Ga. It is our sincere hope
that Michael, with the support of his community, accept responsibility
for the destruction and unjustifiable cycle of harm and police armament
he is helping to construct, in the Cop City project. We are sure that he
will do his best.
We all want a safer community and future. The Cop City is not making
Michael safer, it will not make any of us safer.
Brasfield & Gorrie, please drop the contract with the Atlanta Police

and if they refuse to listen even to the church, treat them as you would
a pagan or a tax collector.
