About the event

Fedex is one of the biggest companies in Tennessee and in 2020 they were one of 55 companies that paid ZERO in federal taxes. 60% of corporations pay no corporate income tax in Tennessee and billionaires pay little to nothing in taxes. The top 1% of income earners only pay 2.8% of their family income in state and local taxes, while the poorest 20% of Tennesseans pay 10.5%.

Corporations have made a "Devil's Bargain" by supporting extremist lawmakers and trading our rights, our safety, and our democracy for tax cuts and profits. We're calling it out on Tax Day!

Meanwhile, our schools go underfunded, our roads have potholes, our water is not clean, and our communities go without vital public services.

Join us at 5:30pm on Tuesday, April 18th in front of Fedex Forum at the entrance on 3rd St. for a rally to demand corporations pay what they owe in taxes so we can fund our communities!
