TN Citizens March For Refugees @ Legislative Plaza


"Governor Haslam has made a statement asking the federal government to not send Tennessee any Syrian refugees until the state has more input. However, with the trend of anti-refugee legislation that has already been passed in our state, we need to show our legislature that we stand with and support these refugees in need. I ask you to stand with me. I would like to get a group of like-minded, compassionate people together who will march on our Legislative Plaza and tell lawmakers that "Nashville welcomes Refugees!"

We are such a diverse and beautiful community. Let us not give in to the fear which dehumanizes and alienates. Let us stand boldly with love and compassion.

"For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind." 2 Timothy 1:7

"The stranger who resides with you shall be to you as the native among you, and you shall love him as yourself, for you were aliens in the land of Egypt; I am the LORD your God.…" Leviticus 19:33"
