Over 300 students, parents and other civic-minded citizens recently gathered at the Honey Alexander Center to hear from seven of Nashville’s mayoral candidates and to join the conversation about Nashville’s children and youth. The forum was brought about jointly by the Nashville Child and Youth Collaborative (of which Martha O’Bryan Center is a part) and WPLN News Radio 90.#1 FM, Nashville’s local news and NPR station.
