Rally against crime at National Night Out

Whether the cause is about taxes or violence, Nashvillans know how to rally. An anti-crime and anti-drugs march will take place at 5:30 p.m. today beginning from two sites, Meigs Magnet School at the corner of 7th Avenue and Ramsey or the Tennessee state employee parking lot at the corner of Charlotte Pike and James Robertson Parkway. The route will end at the courthouse where a rally will follow.

The rally at the Metro Courthouse will feature skits, awards, speeches, music and the Tennessee Titans Cheerleaders. The event is part of a grassroots movement designed to generate crime awareness on National Night Out Against Crime Day. Refreshments will be provided for all who participate.

On hand will be Mayor Bill Purcell, Metro Police Chief Emmett Turner, Richard Griffin from the Nashville School of the Arts, Davidson County Sheriff Gayle Ray, Nashville Fire Chief Stephen Halford, and many others.
