NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) – Dozens of people gathered in downtown Nashville Saturday for a peace march.

The event was held in honor of International Human Rights Day.

The group marched a short distance from the Public Square and across the John Seigenthaler Pedestrian Bridge.

More than a dozen organizations took part in the march. Participants talked to News 2 and explained what the event meant to them.

“I think it also represents that Nashville is a diverse city with diverse interests with diverse passions,” explained Melissa Shah, an organizer for the march.

Those in attendance brought signs and banners promoting love and inclusion.
