Home/Events/06/06/19: Statewide Webinar: “ACLU-TN’s 2019 Legislative Debrief”

There’s no denying it — the 111th Tennessee General Assembly was a roller coaster ride, but it wasn’t just the headline-grabbing way it ended: With a new crop of freshman legislators eager to prove themselves, Tennesseans faced some of the most insidious, discriminatory legislation introduced in recent years — and ACLU-TN was there to fight back every step of the way.

Thursday, June 6
12 – 1 p.m. Central

RSVP required

Join ACLU-TN Executive Director Hedy Weinberg to discuss how we will pursue pro-active initiatives to increase access to the ballot box; stop economic-based discrimination within the criminal justice system; and reform the criminal justice system in the areas of reentry, mental health and juvenile justice — all while fending off any and all legislative attacks on immigrants and refugees, women, LGBTQ people, and racial and religious minorities.

From voter registration drives and school vouchers to abortion trigger bans and adoption discrimination, ACLU-TN Executive Director Hedy Weinberg will discuss our legislative work this session to increase access to the ballot box, pursue criminal justice reform, fight anti-LGBTQ+ discrimination, defend immigrants and refugees from legislative attacks and much more.

This webinar is open to the public. You can join the conversation online or by telephone. RSVP is required and spaces are limited. RESERVE YOUR SPOT TODAY.
