Jerred Price started this petition to City of Memphis

Cooper-Young is a hip, arty neighborhood with century-old buildings occupied by quirky stores selling rare vinyl, handmade chocolates, custom drum kits and vintage fashion. Artisanal coffee spots share the streets with eateries serving Memphis BBQ, sushi and Italian fare, as well as craft beer bars and boisterous pubs with live music.  But one thing you may not know about Cooper-Young is it has the highest density of LGBTQ+ people in the west portion of Tennessee!  It is also home to OUTMemphis.  Through their hard work and sacrifice, they built an “oasis in the desert of our struggle.” This organization, known as the Memphis Gay & Lesbian Community Center, became effective on Feb 23, 1989. Whether or not you’ve ever walked through their doors on Cooper St. or attended one of their events, know that they continue to work to make life better for ALL in our city!

To celebrate our city which welcomes all within it's limits, let's ask the City of Memphis to join other national leading cities, such as Atlanta, to recognize this neighborhood and it's people with a rainbow crosswalk!  Memphis is turning 200 years old this year, and it's time for fresh, new, progressive ideas such as this to take place and take us into the next century! Memphis loves everybody!  Let's show some love to our LGBTQ+ population!
