WHO ARE WE?
Friends for Our Riverfront is a nonprofit citizen group that was formed in 2003. Our goal
is to keep the Memphis riverfront public. We oppose the Riverfront Development Corporation's plan
to let private interests develop public land at taxpayer expense. Instead, we support an
alternative plan to revitalize our riverfront.
