WHERE: Outside the Senators' offices, 3322 West End Avenue

WHAT: Sen. Corker has been asked to visit the protest area so have your questions ready. Feel free to bring signs to express your concerns.

WHO: Speakers: Members of Moral Movement Tennessee, Representatives of Rural Hospitals, Individuals impacted by cuts
