FOX8 News covered our recent Community Forum held at Christian Unity Baptist Church. The Take 'Em Down NOLA Leadership and Legal team gave updates on the pending court case on monument removal. The hearing will take place on September 26th at the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals. The court will decide whether or not to remove the injunction currently preventing the city from taking down four white supremacist monuments.
If the injunction is removed, the city can resume taking bids to bring down the monuments. If the injunction is approved, the monuments will have to remain in place until the case for removal can be heard at the district level.
