Advancing Equality Day on the Hill

Tuesday, February 20 at 8:30 a.m., the Tennessee Equality Project presents the 3rd annual Advancing Equality Day On The Hill, a day in Nashville meeting with your legislators to express your views on proposed legislation affecting the Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual & Transgender Community.

 We’ll start at TPAC and move from there to meetings at Legislative Plaza. You should be able to finish by Noon that day! So, please, consider taking half a day off work for this important cause.We look forward to seeing you and all of your friends on February 1 in Clarksville and on February 20 in Nashville.

We need to start getting a count of who is attending Advancing Equality Day on the Hill. RSVP by emailing me at  chris@tnequalityproject.com. I’m looking forward to hearing from you.
