Chattanooga: Hate Crime Vigil
TTPC at Chattanooga Hate Crimes Vigil and Spring Fling
This weekend, the Tennessee Transgender Political Coalition will be
participating in two important events in Chattanooga.
On Saturday, May 5, TTPC will be participating in the Chattanooga Hate Crimes
Vigil which will take place from 5:00 to 8:30 pm in Riverview Park, 1000
Barton Avenue. Dr. Marisa Richmond, President of TTPC, is scheduled to be one of
the speakers. This vigil is being organized in response to the vicious attack
upon a local transgender man and the bigoted, hateful response by the
Chattanooga Police Department.
The following day, Sunday, May 6, TTPC will have a table at the Tennessee
Valley Pride Spring Fling, the first major Pride event in Tennessee in 2007. The
Spring Fling will take place in Booker T. Washington State Park, 5801
Champion Road, from Noon to 6:00 pm.
The members of TTPC encourage all to participate in the Hate Crimes Vigil on
Saturday and to visit the TTPC table at the Spring Fling on Sunday.
