Call To Action. Shelbyville, TN. Oct. 28, 2017, Not In Our State!
SHARE AND INVITE FAR AND WIDE!! The local Bedford County and Shelbyville community is developing counter actions around #Boo2Hate please share hashtag and use the solidarity photo.
The nazis and kkk pointyheads said they will be demonstrating on the sidewalks of Shelbyville between 10 a.m. and 1 p.m.. We are asking folks to show on the sidewalks to start the counter protest at 9am. Find basic safety tips here: http://notinourstate.weebly.com/safety.html
In an effort to provide a safer space for community members who are direct targets of white supremacist hate speech and action, and to come together as proud anti racist Tennesseans, an event to amplify pro diversity and pro equality ideals is also being organized at a separate location away from the white supremacist rally. Details are developing and we will update again soon. This event page is a SAVE THE DATE providing actual local history and the logic of counter protesting.
