The student body of the University of Memphis Cecil C. Humphreys School of Law is hosting the Memphis Unity March on Saturday, February 27, 2016, in Downtown Memphis. Gathering for the Memphis Unity March will begin at 10 a.m. in Court Square, and it will end in front of The National Civil Rights Museum. The law student organizations that are hosting the Memphis Unity March include the Association for Women Attorneys, Black Law Students Association, Health Law Society, Hispanic Law Students Association, Honor Council, International Law Students Association, Memphis Law + 1, Public Action Law Society, Street Law, Student Bar Association, and OUTLaw. Light refreshments will be provided at Court Square.
The purpose of the Memphis Unity March is to highlight the fact that despite our differences, we all share a common feature–we are human beings who deserve dignity and respect at all times. In light of the different adversities and injustices that are affecting our entire society, it is important that we reaffirm the ideas of unity and respect. The Memphis Unity March is an opportunity for the students of Memphis Law to reach out to the greater Memphis community to work together and promote unity, peace, and humanity.
