The Georgia Music Association held "A Call to Unity" workshop Thursday night.
Their goal is to bring people in the community together to create a safer environment through education and organization.
They hope to sponsor concerts, identify and train leaders,and host community cleanups and rallies.

"I'm bringing Christians together and sharing with them why we need to be unified in our effort to help our community because we're the only ones that can, can't nobody else do this,” said Henry Thomas, Georgia Music Association Founder and CEO.

The organization also plans to reach out to businesses in the community for support.
