The SLRC is assisting almost 20 year Roswell Georgia police Sergeant Silvia Cotriss over her 14 JUL 2016 termination from her employment over a Confederate flag flown at her home. Cotriss was fired after an investigation found that flying the Confederate emblem in her front yard was “conduct unbecoming a Roswell police officer.”

Seeing this as a clear First amendment violation and an ominous threat to any government employee Confederate heritage supporter, the SLRC has produced a memorandum of law to aid in clarifying Sgt Cotriss’ legal rights and potential remedies

The SLRC Board will vote next week in extending representation to Sgt Cotriss in conjunction with local attorney David Ates.

You can help Sgt Cotriss and the SLRC by buying our new Blue Lives Matter Confederate Battle Flag. We are selling them for $19 each ($15 + $4 s&h). Send your order to: SLRC, P.O.Box 1235, Black Mountain, NC 28711

Update: Now you can buy this flag though our online store!
