Thank you for your interest in advancing and defending civil liberties and civil rights in Tennessee.

ACLU-TN is a constant presence at the state capitol during the Tennessee General Assembly session, working to advance legislation that expands or protects our civil liberties and fighting against bills that infringe on our freedoms. But your voice is essential. You can check out highlights of our work at Legislative Plaza and take action on a range of issues below.

This year, we are pursuing proactive initiatives to expand and protect voting rights, end police brutality, and protect free speech. Just as we have always done, ACLU-TN is prepared to ensure that our newly elected and long-serving representatives uphold Tennessee’s values of justice and equality. We will also fight back against any attempts to harm immigrants and refugees, women, gay and transgender people, and racial and religious minorities.

Support a voting paper trail for secure & auditable elections in Tennessee

2021-04-12T19:50:15-05:00 April 12th, 2021|Categories: Take Action|

SB 927/HB 937 would ensure that all Tennessee counties provide a "voter-verified paper audit trail" so that when someone votes, there is a paper record of their ballot that they can verify at the polling place.
