Tennessee Valley Pride wraps up
A few of us went to Chattanooga today to work the TEP/Out & About table at Tennessee Valley Pride's festival finale in Miller Plaza downtown. The turnout was great. The gamble of moving the event from an out-of-the-way park to a public venue paid off. The attendance was somewhere between 400 and 500 people.
They gave us a few minutes to speak about the hospital visitation bill that we're planning to introduce in the Legislature in January. It struck a chord. Dozens came to sign up for our mailing list and some shared stories of being denied visitation. I think Chattanooga legislators are going to be hearing from their constituents this winter.
