The Tennessee Equality Project advocates for the equal rights of LGBTQ people in Tennessee. They do this through legislative advocacy. That means they lobby the Tennessee General Assembly and local governments around the state. When there is an important federal issue, like bills that include anti-LGBTQ adoption language, they help you make your voice heard with your federal officials.
