Albany- Thousands of people across the globe are outraged that the Fullers were fired. Now, they are using websites, rallies and petitions to hopefully convince the board to reverse their decision.
Just one week after the board's announcement more than 1,300 people from around the world have signed this online petition. Nearly one hundred supporters attended a rally Saturday morning showing their support and organizers are already planning a larger rally this weekend.
For those who don't have access to the internet, supporters in Americus are circulating paper petitions gathering even more signatures. So far, they've gotten nearly 1,500 people to sign.
"They're not people that are out there trying to blast Habitat because they love Habitat they're just asking people to pray, and we're asking people to pray and let God work out a lot of these problems out," says Stuart Perry.
Fuller supporters say they will hold a rally at Rylander park in Americus Saturday morning at 10 o'clock. It's right across from the Habitat for Humanity headquarters. They expect several hundred people to attend and are even busing supporters from surrounding areas in.
Monday night, Flint River Habitat for Humanity, the Albany affiliate of the organization will hold their board meeting. At that time they will decide whether they will support the petition.
