    Annual Statewide Convening October 5, 2019

    Healthy and Free Tennessee is excited to announce that our 3rd annual statewide convening will take place October 5, 2019 in Nashville, TN at Tennessee State University. Our statewide convening is a gathering for progressives that centers reproductive freedom and movement building in Tennessee. 

    This year, we will dig deeper into the systemic racism within our movement. The theme is "Reproductive Freedom: What's Race Got to Do With It?" and topics will include eugenics, history of reproductive oppression and resistance in the U.S. South, tracking the White supremacist anti-choice agenda, and anti-oppression tools for organizations, among others.

    Image Description: The image is a flyer with a dark blue background. Faded into the background are popular Nashville buildings that can be found downtown. The words on the first half of the flyer are white and read: Healthy and Free Tennessee 3rd Annual Statewide Convening. October 5, 2019. Reproductive Freedom: What's Race Got To Do With It? Below this is a description that reads: featuring workshops and panels on eugenics, reproductive oppression, and abortion bans as tools of white supremacy. On the bottom half of the flyer toward the left is a picture of Ash-Lee Woodard Henderson. She has on a brown jacket and pink shirt and is smiling at the camera. Next to her picture are words in blue that read: Keynote Speaker: Ash-Lee Woodard Henderson, nationally recognized organizer and Co-Executive Director of the historic Highlander Research & Education Center. Below this are words in white that read: Tennessee State University, Avon Williams Campus (330 10th Ave S., Nashville, TN 37203) and in the bottom right corner is HFTN's logo.
