Take Action Now

Get involved wherever you are in Tennessee!

The fight for abortion justice and reproductive freedom is a marathon — not a sprint — which means that it’s critical that we build a strong, sustainable movement. Creating the world we want takes all of us contributing in our own ways, but it does take all of us.

Whether you’re not sure how to get started or you’re ready to dig in deeper, here are a number of ways you can take action from anywhere in the state:

Virtual/Statewide
Chattanooga
Knoxville
  • Find the next virtual training or volunteer orientation here!

  • Join a virtual Knoxville Activism Meeting. Any Tuesday evening at 6:00PM ET, drop in to learn more about the current local, state, and national fights affecting reproductive freedom. Brainstorm how to take action in East Tennessee and make plans to put these ideas into action with your fellow activists. Email Max at [email protected] for more information.

Our Fight for Abortion Justice

Building a movement means we have the power to create concrete change in our communities — like making sure all people have the abortion care they need, when they need it, in the community they live in and trust. But to do that, we must create a political environment where that change is possible.

We demand that:

  • Elected officials in the TN State Legislature not sponsor or pass any anti-abortion legislation during the 2022 legislative session. 

  • Our legislators support proactive legislation that protects abortion rights and access for all Tennesseeans.
  • Governor Bill Lee specifically does not draft or support any anti-abortion policy or legislation in 2022.
  • All TN state officials stop spending taxpayer dollars defending unconstitutional anti-abortion laws that are currently being litigated in the courts. 
  • All TN federal elected officials support the Women's Health Protection Act.

AT&T's Political Action Committee (PAC) donated money to the sponsors and co-sponsors of SB 8, the 6 week abortion ban in Texas.

We demand that AT&T:

  • Release a statement vowing not to give any more money to anti-abortion campaigns or politicians in the future. 

  • Match the money donated in support of SB8 to TAPP, our PAC, a local abortion fund like Mountain Access Brigade, or a local reproductive justice organization like SisterReach. 
  • Offer all of their employees paid time-off to schedule a reproductive sexual health and wellness check up with their local Planned Parenthood health center.
