Must read

Up the Vote organizer Earle Fisher speaks during their Memphis People's Convention at the Paradise Entertainment Center Saturday, June 8, 2019.

In a transfer to advocate for higher consciousness and push for native legislative reforms, the African American Clergy Collective of Tennessee held coordinated information conferences Wednesday all through the state to deal with the persevering with gun violence epidemic.

Wings of the clergy group from Nashville, Knoxville, Chattanooga and Memphis collaborated to carry the conferences.

The Memphis convention, held Wednesday exterior Regional One Hospital, was led by the Rev. Earle Fisher, senior pastor at Abyssinian Baptist Church in Whitehaven. Fisher emphasised the timeliness of the convention, noting that Wednesday morning a toddler was pronounced lifeless after being shot the night time earlier than in Whitehaven. Fisher emphasised how gun violence ought to be thought of a public well being disaster akin to the opioid epidemic.
