Shelby County Unity Rally inspires crowd

A crowd of approximately 500 gathered at the First Congregational Church in Memphis today for a Unity Rally in support of the proposed non-discrimination ordinance that will come before the full Shelby County Commission tomorrow. The event featured religious leaders, activists, Civil Rights veterans, politicians, and engaged citizens.

We tried to capture all the Tweets of those who were on the scene here so you can get a play by play. Many thanks to former TEP Shelby County committee chair Tommy Simmons for his reporting including the picture at the right.
