The Tennessee Equality Project thanks Metro Council Member Nancy VanReece for introducing the first pro-marriage equality resolution by a county government in Tennessee. You can read it here.
Other co-sponsors so far include Council Members Brett Withers, Burkley Allen, Bob Mendes, Dave Rosenberg, Fabian Bedne, Michael Freeman, Mina Johnson, and Scott Davis. TEP is grateful for their support as well.
Assuming the resolution passes in committee, it will be up for consideration by the full Council on Feb 16. Please, join us in RED for that event.
