A Georgia high school is relocating its prom over safety concerns after a “pro-white” rally was scheduled at the same time and venue.

Peachtree Ridge High School announced Wednesday that it moved the April 23 prom from the Atlanta Evergreen Marriott Resort in Stone Mountain Park to the Westin Buckhead Atlanta, The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported.

Gwinnett school district spokeswoman Sloan Roach said the decision was made after some parents expressed concerns about students’ safety.

A description for the “Rock Stone Mountain” Facebook event says it’s holding an “openly Pro White March” and rally at Stone Mountain Park on April 23, “to be followed by a Pro White concert at a separate location that evening.”

Two other groups have announced plans to counter-protest, AJC reported.

The school’s principal alerted parents earlier this month about the rally and said Peachtree Ridge was working with law enforcement to ensure students’ safety, AJC reported.

In a post pinned to the top of their Facebook event, “Rock Stone Mountain” linked to the group’s mission statement.

“The race that gave birth to Thomas Jefferson, George Washington, and the true nobility of Robert E. Lee, is under attack,” the statement read, in part. “Only 8 percent of the world population is White, and only 2 percent of the world population is comprised of White women of child bearing age. That makes the White race the true ‘minority’ and the extinction of our people a very real threat.

“The mission of Rock Stone Mountain is to bring attention to not only the continuing removal of Confederate heritage (ancestral inheritance), but also to the REASON it is being removed – as well as who wants it removed. They want to erase our heritage because they want to erase us! The main platform of Communism is egalitarianism, and those that claim “heritage” to the Confederacy but also promote “racial diversity” and multi-culturalism, reveal themselves by their own actions. The attempt at racial genocide against our White race is very real, and Rock Stone Mountain is a clarion call from the mountaintop to rally against those that seek our destruction!” the statement continued. “Despite the repeated lies told by those that oppose us, this is a non-partisan and peaceful gathering of likeminded individuals. We seek to use our first amendment right to speech and to peaceably assemble – to speak out and stand against the malicious attempt on the future of our very children!”
