The meeting will be postponed due to the snow. A rescheduled date will be announced soon, according to Glen Paul Freedman, chair of the advisory board.

The agenda for the now-postponed meeting included a review of the federal lawsuit settlement between the city and plaintiffs from the Atlanta Eagle stemming from the botched 2009 raid on the bar, an update on the status of the investigation into the shooting death of Black Gay Pride organizer Durand Robinson and an update on the status of DUI and road checks used in the city.

APD’s LGBT Liaison Officers Patricia Powell and Brian Sharp were also set to address the board. Members of the Atlanta Citizen Review Board were to be on-hand to discuss how the ACRB and the LGBT Advisory Board can work together in the future.
