Healthy and Free Tennessee hosts a lobby day or day on the hill each year where we mobilize Tennesseans to action in visiting their legislators, to ensure elected officials hear directly from their constituents. This event is open to anyone who is interested! Each year, we set up appointments with legislators for participants, and provide them with a list of current legislation to discuss, plus talking points to guide their conversations.
The day will include a morning lobbying training and an afternoon lunch with guest speakers. 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. In the afternoon, we encourage participants to attend committee hearings, and finally, we will end the day with a press conference.
