It's Time to Take Action
A few things to know:
-The bridge is on federal land. It's part of the 444-mile Natchez Trace, overseen by the National Park Service. This makes our job more complicated. We'll need our members of Congress to support barriers, and secure the federal funding.
The bridge is in Rep. Mark Green's District 7. Please contact your district Representative and explain the need to make the bridge more safe.
Please contact Senators Lamar Alexander and Marsha Blackburn.
-At least 32 people have died by suicide at the bridge since 2000, 13 of whom perished between just 2015-2018. In 2017 alone, 5 people died by suicide at the bridge. (Source: National Park Service)
