That Was Then: Reject The Cover-Up protest, Nashville

On Wednesday, February 5, at 5:30 PM, the night that Senate Republicans are expected to “acquit” Donald Trump after they blocked key witnesses with incriminating evidence from testifying, protestors will gather at Senator Lamar Alexander’s Nashville office at 3322 West End Avenue as part of the nationwide "Reject The Cover-Up” rallies.


The event is part of a nationwide effort to hold Donald Trump and Republican lawmakers accountable for betraying the American people and the Constitution Protestors will send a clear message to Trump and to GOP senators: Any “acquittal” made after blocking key evidence is not an exoneration—it’s a cover-up. Marquita Bradshaw, Democratic Candidate for U.S. Senate, states “Interference in our election is an offense to us all. We make our system work more perfectly by actively participating and holding our elected officials accountable by voting. We build together a greater legacy of America by letting our voices be heard collectively.”

"Senate Republicans have abdicated their responsibility to uncover the ENTIRE truth about Trump’s actions. There is more to be discovered and Congress is the place to do it - it’s why we elected them," says Mary Mancini, Chair of the Tennessee Democratic Party, who will speak at the Reject the Cover-up Nashville event.

More than 225 events are being planned across the country by a large coalition of groups. The Nashville event is being co-hosted by Tennessee Citizen Action, Power Together Women’s March Tennessee, Nashville & Middle TN Indivisible, TN Anti Racist Network and Indivisible Tennessee. A full list of events can be found here.

Speakers in Nashville will include: Mary Mancini, Chair of TNDP; Andy Spears, Director of Tennessee Citizen Action; Marquita Bradshaw, Democratic Candidate for U.S. Senate and Conservation Chair for Sierra Club-Memphis; and Mary Linden, President of the Tennessee Federation of Democratic Women.

When I started medical transition at 20 years old, it was very difficult to get the care I needed for hormone replacement therapy because there are very few providers trained in starting hormones for trans people, even though it’s very similar to the hormones that we prescribe to women in menopause or cisgender men with low testosterone.

I hope more providers get trained in LGBTQ+ healthcare, so they can support patients along their individual gender journey, and provide the info needed to make informed decisions about their body. I’ve personally seen my trans patients find hope and experience a better quality of life through hormone replacement therapy.
