Trustee Erica Gilmore Announces 2nd Annual Walks with the Trustee

Metropolitan Trustee Erica Gilmore is excited to announce the 2nd Annual Walks with the Trustee, set to take place in the summer of 2024. In collaboration with America Walks and Walk Bike Nashville, Trustee Gilmore invites the community to be a part of this effort towards a greener, more walkable Nashville and Davidson County.

The upcoming walks include:

  • April 19: Diane Nash 2nd Annual Commemorative Walk
  • May 7: Faith Leaders Walk
  • June 4: Walk with Pride
  • July 7: New Americans Walk

The 2nd Annual Diane Nash Commemorative Walk is part of the greater Nashville and Davidson County’s celebration of the Civil Rights trailblazer who played a pivotal role as an activist, leader, and strategist in the student wing of the Civil Rights Movement. Councilwoman Zulfat Suara’s “Dedicating Diane Nash Plaza: A Celebration of Courage and Conviction” event on April 20, 2024, also uplifts the Civil Rights Movement leader. Visit to learn more about Councilwoman Suara’s dedication.

The Faith Leaders Walk brings together faith communities to advocate for unity and justice, promoting the idea that mobility rights are essential for accessing spaces of worship and community gathering. Walk with Pride offers a platform for LGBTQ+ members and allies to stand together, highlighting the role of inclusive public spaces in supporting equality. Lastly, the New Americans Walk celebrates the diverse journeys of immigrants, emphasizing how mobility justice ensures their right to move freely and safely within their new community.

Through these walks, the Metropolitan Trustee champions the cause of making Nashville a more walkable, bikeable, and equitable city for everyone. Let’s walk together towards a healthier, more connected Nashville.
