Rally being organized to stand against sexual harassment in city council

LOUISVILLE (WHAS11) – A rally will be held on Thursday, Nov. 9, to reject sexual harassment in Louisville Metro City Council.

According to the Facebook event, Dan Johnson’s “behavior is inexcusable.” The rally is open to citizens who want to show they are against the council’s decision to keep Johnson on the council. The council voted 13-6 to keep Johnson last week.

Hallie Kirk Dizdarevic, one of the event organizers, said she and her friends decided to organize the rally after they noticed “outrage” on social media over the vote to keep Johnson.
