Mayor to Issue Proclamation Promoting Unity

Proclamation - Unity

Mayor Edd Akers will issue a proclamation at tonight’s regular Board of Aldermen meeting at 6 p.m. at Branson City Hall promoting unity and condemning hate speech.

The proclamation in part, reiterates the City of Branson’s commitment to providing a welcoming and inclusive environment for all citizens and visitors to our community.

This proclamation comes after a video of a woman, in Branson, draped in a Confederate Battle Flag, went viral on several social media platforms. This person’s actions occurred among a separate group during a peaceful demonstration along W. 76 Country Blvd. in Branson.

While the City of Branson supports the Constitutional rights of everyone to peacefully assemble and protest any cause, the City does not, in any way, support hate speech.

The City of Branson and its residents have long been known for our hospitality and inclusive nature. We welcome millions of visitors each year of all ethnicities, religions, ages, genders and personal choices. Our community is committed to uniting together, listening to one another and believe hate will never resolve any issue.
