Road Tripping and Rallying for Peace in Knoxville
Written by Natalie Davis on August 6, 2015
Many apologies: A crushing work schedule — including an all-day stint shooting “Nashville” Wednesday — has made it tough for me to get to the blog. But I wanted to make sure this info was passed along.
Meanwhile, we have other happenings for those staying in Nashville on Friday:
- From 11:30 am to 1 pm, the League of Women Voters holds its regular first Friday public lecture. This month, the subject is the Aug. 6 Metro Nashville and Davidson County election results. Speaking on the matter will be none other than Nashville Public Radio Assistant News Director Blake Farmer. Bring a lunch or buy one at the event for $12. The lecture takes place at Second Harvest Center, 331 Great Circle Road.
If you can’t make it to the big Knoxville rally, speak your piece against war right here in Music City. At 4:30 pmFriday, peace-progressive Nashvillians will rally against nukes on the sidewalk of West End Avenue in front of Centennial Park. Bring signs for peace, against nukes, etc., preferably just a few words in large print, so they can be read by passing motorists. The rally starts at 4:30, and will last until at least 5:30 pm.
