Pikeville rally to be rescheduled due to safety concerns
Posted April 27, 2017
Out of caution, the Rally for Equality and American Values that had been set for April 29 in Pikeville will be rescheduled for a later date.
The following is a statement from event organizer Ariana Velasquez:
"Upon consultation with law enforcement, local and state officials, and university administration, we have unanimously decided to reschedule the Rally For Equality and American Values for a later date. This has been a tough decision, but real and previously unforeseen credible threats to the safety of our attendees and our community have led us to believe this is the right call. While we understand any disappointment, and share in it ourselves, our original goal of a safe, family friendly celebration of equality and American values is not possible at this time. We look forward to seeing everyone at the rescheduled event."
We will share more details as they become available.
