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. Started in 2017, 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, dismantling White Christian supremacy, abortion bans as a tool of White supremacy, and anti-oppression tools for organizations, among others.
Stay tuned for more details - coming soon!
