Groups to hold protests at Legislative Plaza in Nashville

NASHVILLE, Tenn. — The American Baptist College's affiliate of the Southern Christian Leadership Conference is leading a series of protests this week at the Legislative Plaza in Nashville.

The protests are scheduled to be held today through Thursday from 1 to 2:30 p.m. each day at the plaza across from the state Capitol.

Issues the group will address include raising the state minimum wage to $15 per hour and creation of measures that are sensitive to the rights of undocumented immigrants.

The SCLC was formed in 1957 and one of its main objectives was to advance the cause of civil rights in America using a nonviolent approach.
