Two gatherings took place in protest of Judge Brett Kavanaugh's Supreme Court confirmation.

The #BelieveSurvivors Candlelight Vigil was held at Centennial Park in the West End. The group planned to march to the offices of Senator Bob Corker and Lamar Alexander.

The Stand For More - #StopKavanaugh Vigil was held at Public Square Park.  

At the vigil, one sexual assault victim told the handful of protestors gathered her story of why she had waited to report her encounter.

"Basically all my friends were his friends, if I said anything it would ruin the relationship and I would be without a lot of friendships I had," said Abby Lee Hood.

Sen. Corker and Alexander said they would still be voting to confirm Judge Kavanaugh.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell  took a key step to advance Brett Kavanaugh's nomination  to the Supreme Court on Wednesday, saying on the Senate floor that "this evening, the Senate will receive the results of the FBI supplemental background investigation" into the allegations against the nominee.
