Tennessee Open For Business

openforbiz.pngTennessee Open For Business is a free program for Tennessee businesses that pledge not to discriminate against their employees or customers on the basis of sexual orientation or gender identity. That means that member businesses do not discriminate against gay, lesbian, bisexual, or transgender individuals or couples.  Members will get a listing on our website, a post on Facebook, and a window cling suitable for display in their storefront. The program is made possible through generous support of the Brooks Fund of the Community Foundation of Middle Tennessee.

You can see a list of some of the current members of Tennessee Open For Business at this link
