At around 10 AM, after the rally in Centennial Park, we will begin a peaceful sidewalk march to our Senators’ offices at Murphy Road and West End Avenue. We do not have permission from the park authorities to march within the park, so please follow the march leaders and marshals!
1. Please follow the march leader, Jane Hussain, and our marchers carrying official organizational banners (e.g., Nashville Peace and Justice Center, March for Science Nashville). They will be leading the march.
2. If possible, please walk single file on the sidewalk, so there is room for runners, tourists, and bystanders.
3. Marshals will be ensuring that marchers are following traffic laws. Please listen to their directions. They will be wearing orange vests, so they are easily identifiable. If you notice an emergency occurring, please notify one of the marshals and they will contact the appropriate authorities.
4. We ask that marchers stay on the sidewalk and obey traffic signals. We are conducting a peaceful demonstration, and we do not want to disrupt every day traffic.
5. Do make sure to wave your signs and banners towards the street. While we may not want to disrupt people’s commutes, we do want drivers to see our message! This is especially important to do while waiting for traffic signals to change to WALK.
