The ACLU will stand up for the Ku Klux Klan’s right to participate in an Adopt a Highway program.

ACLU of Georgia Executive Director Debbie Seagraves tells The Atlanta Journal-Constitution that the civil rights group will assist the Klan in its battle with the state.

The International Keystone Knights of the KKK applied to join the “Adopt-A-Highway” program along part of Route 515 in the north Georgia mountains. Participating groups are recognized with a sign along the road they adopt.

State officials announced this month they would deny the KKK group’s application, setting up the legal showdown.
