The American Civil Liberties Union has filed suit against the state of Georgia on behalf of the Ku Klux Klan.

The KKK wants to adopt a roadside sign, but their request was denied by the Georgia Department of Transportation because of the organization's history of violence.

The ACLU claims the sign is a form of free speech.

Local leaders in Georgia have said in the past that a sign sponsored by the KKK is not how they want to represent the area.
