The Tennessee House of Representatives is set to hold votes on the expulsion of Representatives Gloria Johnson, Justin Jones, and Justin Pearson on Thursday morning (April 6). Please, use the items in this campaign and reach out to your local media asking them to ask your area's state representatives how they are going to vote on the expulsion. The people need answers and the media can help get them!
