NASHVILLE — The Tennessee Democratic Party will host a statewide conference and workshop for Democrats in Jackson, Tenn. on May 20-22.
The Tennessee Values Summit will be the first step in 2011 the party takes to refocus on its “ground game,” said Chip Forrester, chairman of the state party.
“Tennesseans have a long history of engaging with one another at town hall-style events,” Forrester said. “So we’re going back to our roots. We’re going to bring Democrats together, discuss our values and talk about the best ways to communicate why we choose to stand up for rural folks and working people.”
The Tennessee Values Summit will take place at the Doubletree Hotel in Jackson. Democrats will open the Values Summit with a reception 7 p.m. Friday. The conference will conclude at 3:30 p.m. Sunday.
Democratic leaders and organizers from around the state will be in attendance.
Programs and workshops will educate Democrats on how best to message current issues and provide strategies for grassroots party building in their communities.
In an email to supporters, Forrester explained the program: “Learn how we plan to take back Tennessee for rural folks and working people by showing our families, friends and neighbors what it means to be a Democrat.”
The Summit motto is: Bringing One Tennessee Together.
Online registration is now open. For more information visit: http://www.tndp.org/page/the-tennessee-values-summit.
