Washington, D.C. – On Memorial Day, we honor and reflect upon the courage, integrity, and selfless dedication of the members of our Armed Forces who have made the greatest sacrifice in service to our Nation.
Whether in the waters of the Pacific, on the beachheads of Europe, in the deserts of the Middle East, or in the mountains of Afghanistan, American service members have given their lives to uphold our Constitution and to defend the safety and freedoms of our citizens.
APSU’s Karen Bullis, Kathy Lee Heuston film ‘Tennessee Triumph: Making a Moment’ premieres at June Art Walk
Clarksville, TN – Two Austin Peay State University (APSU) professors will premiere their documentary about the creation of Tennessee Triumph – a Clarksville monument that celebrates the passage of the 19th Amendment, which secured women’s right to vote.

Washington, D.C. – Nearly 100 years ago, suffragists gathered together in the Nashville Hermitage Hotel to fight for the right to vote. These women weren’t just activists. They were mothers, wives, and sisters bonded by one common goal—equality. Their efforts pushed Tennessee to be the 36th and final state needed to ratify the 19th Amendment.
While the conversation of equality continued after earning the right to vote, that debate bears little resemblance to the rhetoric we hear today. The current debate favors mandatory, sweeping societal change far from the equal rights these Nashville suffragists established. H.R.5, the Equality Act, proposed by House Democrats is a prime example.
Washington, D.C. – U.S. Senators Marsha Blackburn (R—Tenn.) and Steve Daines (R— Mont.) introduced legislation to prohibit U.S. taxpayer dollars from being used to rejoin the job-killing Paris Climate Agreement. They also introduced a Senate resolution calling on President Biden to submit the Paris Agreement to the Senate for review as required under the Constitution.
“By rejoining the Paris Climate Accords, the Biden administration prioritized leftist goals of foreign countries above the needs of the American people,” said Senator Blackburn.

Washington, D.C. – One hundred years ago, Tennessee became the “Perfect 36th” state when it ratified the 19th Amendment. It took over 70 years of tireless efforts by generations of suffragists to enfranchise American women under the United States Constitution.
To honor this anniversary, Senator Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) and I assembled a special project for the Smithsonian. We recruited 22 of our female colleagues to write essays about what the centennial means to them, the challenges they faced on their paths to the U.S. Senate, and their hopes for our future.
