This past year was a transformative year in the United States, and in many ways because of people like Franklin’s own Angel Stansberry. Beyond running Feed the Need Nashville, a nonprofit organization that feeds hundreds of Nashville’s homeless folks a week, Stansberry has spent the majority of her free time organizing demonstrations and stand-ins in both Williamson County and Nashville. From helping establish the Nashville autonomous zone following the death of George Floyd, to leading the charge in a peaceful protest against the Breaonna Taylor case ruling, wherever there are calls for change, it’s likely you’ll see Stansberry leading the charge.
