Tammi Campbell (ombudsperson for Knox County Schools) and Mark Stephens (Public Defender and director, Community Law Center, seen here addressing the audience) spoke about the challenges their institutions face in achieving equity and justice in the treatment of people of color and other disadvantaged populations.

Sunday Vigil at Y-12 in Oak Ridge Tennessee

Sunday Vigil

OREPA has held Sunday vigils every week for more than 22 years at the main entrance to the Y-12 Nuclear Weapons Complex (intersection of Scarboro Rd and East Bear Creek Road). We will now be holding the vigil at 4:00PM ET during the winter months so we don’t have to be sitting out in the dark. We are outdoors and space our chairs; when covid numbers are up, we encourage people to wear masks. Bring your own chair, we have some umbrellas for sun shade or rain.
