With only a little over one week of President Trump officially in office, we've already seen several thousands of Nashville's citizens take to the streets to protests his controversial actions...and they don't plan on stopping any time soon.
Here's the protests that will be going on in Nashville this week:
Defend the ACA Rally
Organizing for Action is rallying outside of Monroe Carell Jr. Vanderbilt Children's Hospital to defend the Affordable Care Act. In their press release they stated, "As some in Congress push forward with a reckless political crusade to repeal Obamacare, OFA volunteers are holding an event in Nashville on Tuesday, January 31 to amplify the voices ofTennesseans whose lives and livelihoods hang in the balance."
**The rally will start at noon**
We All Belong Vigil
Seven cities across Tennessee will be participating in vigil sponsored by the Tennessee Immigrant and Refugee Rights Coalition.
Nashville's vigil will be held at Coleman Park Community Center at 5:30 pm Wednesday, February 1st. Their message is simple: "We must come together to show that we won't stand for these kinds of attacks on our communities. No Ban. No Walls. No Mass Deportations. We All Belong."
**Don't forget your candles**
