Truman Day is the annual fundraising banquet of the Knox County Democratic Party. Enjoy a lovely evening with fellow Democrats while supporting efforts to FLIP KNOX COUNTY BLUE!
The guest speaker will be Senator Doug Jones (D-Alabama). Sen. Jones, who unseated Trump supported Republican Sen. Roy Moore from a seat Republicans held for decades. Jones’s victory is largely credited to voting campaigns led by black women in Alabama getting out the black vote.
Sen. Jones is the first Democratic Senator to hire a black Chief of Staff.
As a United States Attorney, Jones led the team of prosecutors and investigators in the reopened historic “cold case” of the 1963 bombing of the 16th Street Baptist Church in Birmingham. Jones served as the lead trial attorney in the successful prosecutions of two former Ku Klux Klansmen for the murder of four young girls killed in the bombing.
