Two immigrant solidarity events today, March 29

The Tennessee Immigrant and Refugee Rights Coalition sent a reminder this morning of the two opportunities it is sponsoring for Tennessee immigrants and friends to be heard today, Wednesday, March 29th. Another, third event, is also rumored.

1. Immigrant & Refugee Legislative Reception
Offices of Waller, Landsen, Dortch and Davis, PLLC
511 Union Street, 27th Floor Conference Center
Nashville, TN 37219
Space is Limited, First Come First Serve!!!

2. March and Rally for Comprehensive Immigration Reform
6:00pm March from Nashville Coliseum to War Memorial Plaza
(please show up early)
7:00pm Rally at War Memorial Plaza
301 6th Ave North
Nashville, TN 37243

The Nashville City Paper published this article about the two events sponsored by the group. The Tennessean published this graphic mapping the march and rally. It incorrectly limits the scope of the march to solidarity with Hispanic immigrants. The City Paper story correctly states that immigrants of all backgrounds are sponsoring the march.

update 9am: Rumors of a third event today have not been confirmed. Announcements were made at churches and in workplaces, and some participants have been authorized to leave work early to join the effort, but updated reports indicate that those preparations are for the 6pm rally at the Coliseum.
