Tennessee Democrats reject white supremacy

Hate groups are unwelcome in Tennessee

NASHVILLE - In response to the white supremacist rallies planned in Tennessee, Mary Mancini, Chair, Tennessee Democratic Party; US Representative Jim Cooper; US Representative Steve Cohen; the Tennessee Senate Democratic Caucus; and the Tennessee House Democratic Caucus released the following statement:

"There is no place for hate groups in a civil society. Every Tennessean deserves to live free of persecution no matter who they are, what they look like, or where they live. Tennessee Democrats condemn any organization that promotes hate or hate-fueled ideologies. We expect every responsible leader and political party in the state to do the same."

A white nationalist rally is scheduled this weekend in Shelbyville, Tenn. and another in Murfreesboro, Tenn.
