Baby Steffen Rivenburg was killed while in DCS custody June 8, 2017. This event has been scheduled to coincide with the anniversary of his tragic death. His story was covered extensively by Terri LaPoint on
I'm planning to mee...t up downtown Nashville around 2 Friday, June 8 and marching on the sidewalk on Charlotte Pike from the Supreme Court Bldg.401 7th Ave. N, Nashville, to the Capitol, to the Historic Courthouse then across the Woodland Street Bridge to the Juvenile Justice Center 100 Woodland St., Nashville, 37213 There is a country music festival going on, so downtown will be crowded and this map indicates where some of the bands will be...the Juvenile Justice Center is on the south side of Woodland Streed, next to Nissan Arena, but you don't see it on the map. What we do depends on how many people plan to participate and what they want to do.
Besides the march, I would like to stop at the courthouse and have some speakers and some songs. I was thinking of us lining up with signs ....spreading out afterwards so those in rush-hour traffic can be informed, and the attendees of the Fan Fair will see us I would like to have some literature to pass out to anyone waiting at stop lights, or whoever is passing by who is willing to take it. I think it is more effective to be spread out, I think we get more eyes that way. We will get lots of exposure--people come from all over the world.
Then, I would like for us to all reconvene....maybe at Fannie May Dees Park (Dragon Park) adjacent to Monroe Carell Children's Hospital where Baby Steffen (Steffen Rivenburg, Jr.) was murdered by court order while in DCS custody. I would like to have a candlelight ceremony in remembrance of Baby Steffen and all the people who have died or who live in constant pain because of judicial corruption.
Then, on June 9, 12:30 we will be meeting at the Goodlettsville Public Library, thanks to Mattie Mitchell with «Liam Changed The World» for getting us the room, which will seat 100.....and I hope we fill it up! DAY TWO, JUNE 9 EVENT PAGE IS HERE:
I envision something very similar to what Ted Fogg put together in Georgia for the Nancy Schaefer Remembrance...but more «kid-friendly» and the speakers will likely be limited to 15-20 minutes.
We need--
1. people to attend
2. literature to distribute
3. may need permits
4. some money — for the event? Some people may need transportation costs covered to make it here. Any literature we have printed will cost..I have a couple hundred postcard/fliers We should do this on a shoestring, but the more money we get, the bigger the production and, hopefully, the more attention we will get.
5. exposure....we need as many people as possible to know about this event and share it. What happened to Baby Steffen was the most horrible abuse by court order I have ever heard of. People need to understand what happened and that we have to rein in the judges. When we get plans finalized, we need to start advertising like this was a Shriner's Circus or something.
I want this to not only be a remembrance of a tragic death, but also a celebration of family.
