Nashville Rising: Work, Wages and the Future of Nashville

TSU Avon Williams Campus

Nashville is indeed on the rise as evidenced by the dozens of cranes lining our skies, rapid business growth, and our robust tourism and hospitality industries. Unfortunately, not all Nashvillians are enjoying this rise. Surges in rent and home prices coupled with stagnant and low wages, obstacles to acquiring health insurance, and limited access to workforce opportunities have contributed to the struggles faced by many increasingly being left in the wake of the success we are enjoying.
Strategies, actions, and public policies are needed to help those facing poverty and advance workplace morality. Please join us on April 6 for a needed self-examination and conversation, convened by A VOICE for the Reduction of Poverty, centered on how we can create the conditions and culture in our city that will help more among us enjoy the growth we are witnessing.
Sign up to attend at Eventbrite. Please feel encouraged to share this invitation with others.

Its purpose is to provide human rights educational resources and activities that inform, assist and unite individuals, educators, organizations and governmental bodies in the dissemination and adoption of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights at every level of society.
United for Human Rights was founded on the Declaration’s 60th anniversary, in the face of continued worldwide abuses which violate the spirit, intent and Articles of this charter of all human rights, the first such document ever ratified by the community of nations. Surveys have found that most people have only a limited understanding of human rights. The Declaration contains the thirty rights that together form the basis of a civilization wherein all people can enjoy the freedoms to which they are entitled, and nations can coexist in peace.
