Burk plans Augusta protest sites

Martha Burk made her first visit to Augusta to scout possible protest sites near Augusta National Golf Club during The Masters.

Burk, the head of the National Council of Women's Organizations, was accompanied by supporters as she studied the neighborhood for about two hours Saturday.

The National Council of Women's Organizations and other groups plan to protest the club's all-male membership during The Masters in April.

Augusta-Richmond County officials have said protesters will not be allowed near the club's main gates because of dangerous traffic on Washington Road. Burk said the alternative protest sites are too far from the club. Burk would not give details about the planned protest.

Burk was in Atlanta to meet with players from the WNBA, who are seeking a new contract and have received her support.
