2018 Lobby Day

Join HFTN for our 2018 Lobby Day. Our elected officials need to hear from us, their constituents, on what policies we want and expect relating to our bodies and our identities. Check our our 2018 Legislative Watch List.

**REGISTER HERE**

The day will include a morning lobbying training and an afternoon lunch. We will set up appointments with your legislators for you, and provide you with specific legislation to discuss with them, plus talking points to guide you.

All of the day’s activities are in the Cordell Hull Building located at 425 5th Avenue North. Healthy and Free Tennessee’s table will be on the 1st floor near the cafeteria 7:30am-4pm.
