It was inequality that brought dozens of people together to march in unity.

"Basically this is so that we can spend some time coming together. Unity means coming together, and peace and love is what we all aspire to," said Requel Bueno.

Before taking to the streets, people created signs to carry their message through downtown Nashville.



Across the country, people have been sharing their message of unity through marches on International Human Rights Day, and the organizer of this march said she's marching to spread peace, love, and equality throughout Nashville.

"I think that there is a lot of division, especially living in the South. I think any opportunity for a city to come together and show that we're united is a great opportunity," said Melissa Shah, march organizer.

Those who marched were hoping to bring unity to a country that seems to be so deeply divided.

"You can move one way or the other. You can just step away and just turn your back on what's happening or we can step in," said Bueno.
