Late last month, the Georgia Knight Riders of the KKK planned a rally on the courthouse steps in Donalsonville to protest illegal immigration as well as other hot-button issues.

But now, the Seminole county NAACP came out today announcing they will hold a unity rally in response.

The NAACP is calling the gathering a "Not in Our Town" unity rally.

Members of the Seminole County Branch will meet with church and community leaders along with the general public at Macedonia Baptist Church on Martin Luther King, Jr. Drive tomorrow at noon.

That's about two hours before KKK members will speak on the courthouse steps downtown.

NAACP Vice President Gene Rambo says his group thinks it is important to stand up against the klan who he says “Spreads bigotry.”

Rambo said “Talk to the people and let them know that these are things that we are going to try to work to avoid and to keep away from our city and county. That is the main thing we just don’t need those kinds of people in Seminole County."

Both groups have said they do not plan on marching.

That means any protest or rally that takes place tomorrow is expected to be a stationary one.

But possibly one that can be heard from blocks away.
