Kicking off at 8:15 this morning, Kathy Chambers and “Clergy for Justice” along with “Gideon's Army” gathered in response to Sen. Campfield's “Starve the Children” legislation, which will be up for vote on the Senate floor today. They met in front of the lower/main entrance to Legislative Plaza (6th ave side/6th and union) and left promptly from there at 8:15 to go inside Legislative Plaza.
They gathered outside the Senate chambers and awaited the arrival of the Gideon's Army Children's Choir and the State Senators. When they arrive, they will join with the children in several songs.
The children will be presenting the online petition with 2,500+ signatures from Tennesseans to Sen. Campfield as he comes out of a meeting, then they will walk with him to the Senate chambers. With any luck, many the senators should arrive around the same time, as they'll be leaving a meeting and walking together.
We will update this article as the day goes on, adding more information as we learn it and more photos as they come in.
