Nearly 2,000 Rally for Support in Georgia

ATLANTA -- Cars had to detour around the Capitol on Thursday as about 2,000 people crowded in the street to demand better services and support for people with disabilities and their families.
The point is "to get them out of institutions and get them into communities," said Jerry Sapp, president of the Bleckley County chapter of The Arc, an advocacy group, and single father of a son who has cerebral palsy.
Many in the crowd carried signs reading "Unlock The Doors To Real Communities," the theme of the rally, hosted by the Georgia Council on Developmental Disabilities.
