And remember that Tennessee's voter registration deadline is October 9 if you want to participate in the November 6 election. Register online/on your phone at https://proudvoter.org/tep/ . If you're already registered, share the link with friends. Many people in Tennessee don't know the deadline is October 9.
Thanks for all you do to advance equality in Tennessee.
What does TEP do? The Tennessee Equality Project advocates for the equal rights of LGBTQ people in Tennessee. We do this through legislative advocacy. That means we lobby the Tennessee General Assembly and local governments around the state. When there is an important federal issue, like this anti-LGBTQ adoption issue, we help you make your voice heard with your federal officials.
What does the TEP Foundation do? The TEP Foundation provides a variety of educational and organizing programming. We have registered 282 voters online since October. We provide workshops called Advocacy 101 across the state so that more people can engage their elected officials. We monitor and analyze state legislation related to the LGBTQ community. We gather stories about the impact of state preemption of local government and provide public education on the issue. We hold Boro Pride in Murfreesboro annually. Our Tennessee Open For Business program recognizes companies that do not discriminate against their employees or customers on the basis of sexual orientation or gender identity.
