Women’s rights are human rights and human rights are women’s rights. A woman-led nonviolent movement is more crucial now than ever to push access to equal rights for all and end systems of oppression. The Tennessee Democratic Party stands with women and families no matter who you are, what you look like, where you live, who you love, or how you worship.
Right now, in the Tennessee legislature, Republicans are continuing to push regressive policies to strip women, workers, our LGTBQ+ neighbors, immigrants, and families of their rights. Tennessee was the state that cast the deciding vote for the 19th amendment, but we cannot be the last to make strides in furthering rights for all. Our future depends upon it.
The people of Tennessee need elected leaders that will pass laws to improve their lives instead of Republican politicians who pass bills that restrict rights and squelch the pursuit of happiness. In less than 190 days, we have to stand together and cast our vote for women’s rights, reproductive rights, workers’ rights, ending violence, environmental justice, and LGTBQ+ rights.
