Memphis Budget Replenishment

April 17th, the Tennessee House approved an amendment that removed $250,000 from our city, punishing Memphis for removing two Confederate monuments. These dollars would have been used for our city’s bicentennial celebration. If you are a Memphian, Tennessean, or general supporter of the removal of these statues in our community, please, consider donating; 25,000 of us donating $10 each would replenish the dollars lost. All money raised will be given to the City of Memphis. Our city should not be punished by the legislature for making decisions in the best interest of its community and citizens. 

You can read more on the story here per The Commercial Appeal or here ‌ per The New York Times.
