‘Civility in Tennessee’ topic of April 8 FrankTalks at Spark in Cool Springs

Join us for our monthly FrankTalks as we hear from David Plazas of The Tennessean, Shanna Singh Hughey of Think Tennessee, and Franklin Mayor Ken Moore for a discussion on Civility in Tennessee.

This free event is made possible by the generosity of our presenting partner, Williamson Medical Center, and Renasant Bank, our platinum partner. A 30-minute coffee networking session will begin at 9 a.m., followed by the hour-long program at 9:30 a.m.

David Plazas is the opinion and engagement director for the USA TODAY NETWORK – Tennessee and opinion and engagement editor for The Tennessean. In January 2018, under his leadership, The Tennessean launched Civility Tennessee, a yearlong campaign to engage the community behind four core values:

  • To encourage conversations that are civil and respectful, even if they are hard;
  • To enhance civic participation in important conversations such as the local, state and federal elections of 2018;
  • To help promote voter registration efforts;
  • To increase news literacy and enhance trust between consumers and publications.

Hughey is president of ThinkTennessee, a nonpartisan think tank based in Nashville. For more about ThinkTennessee, visit www.thinktennessee.org.

In 2018, Franklin Mayor Ken Moore created Unite Williamson in an effort to bring together and connect faith-based organizations for the benefit of everyone in our community. The group held its first inter-faith prayer breakfast in Fall 2018.
