Community members upset about issues they believe have been swept under the rug met with Metro leaders who listened to their concerns.
Saturday morning, several representatives with the District Attorney's Office, Metro Council members, and a representative with the United States Attorney's office were all present at the "Community Services Breakfast" at Corinthian Baptist Church.
Metro leaders have been hoping the open dialog can begin changing problems in the community.
"I care about all of these bodies that we're burying, all of these children that we're burying. Today is my son's birthday, and I will have to take his cake to the graveyard today because of the gun violence that everyone's overlooking," said Clemmie Greenlee, of Nashville Peacemakers.
The next community meeting has been set to start at 8:30 a.m. on April 15 at Corinthian Baptist Church.
