Thanks to the controversial proposed English First amendment, Nashville’s progressive community is now a lot stronger and better-connected. More than seventy diverse groups came together in the form of the coalition, Nashville For All Of Us to work on the issue and mobilize grassroots supporters. When asked about the coalition’s future, coordinator Devin Brady said, ” There are no specific plans, but I certainly hope that we can turn our victory AGAINST one thing into an effort FOR something else. Having defeated a largely symbolic amendment, I hope we can work to change policies that can actually improve people’s lives”.
