Marisa Richmond Nominated For Nashville Human Relations Commission
Was elated to hear that Dr. Marisa Richmond was nominated by Nashville Mayor Megan Barry yesterday to serve on the Metro (Nashville) Human Relations Commission This commission is tasked with investigating discrimination complains in Nashville and Davidson County.
If she is confirmed, she would become the first openly trans person to serve on any Metro commission or board in an official capacity.
The confirmation votes for Dr. Richmond will take place in the Rules-Confirmations-Public Elections Committee and the full Metro Council on May 17. If you like in the Nashville metro area, both meetings will be open to the public.
Congratulations Marisa on a well deserved nomination!
