A More Equitable Election in Tennessee
As a part of our 2020 non-partisan campaign, we started a relationship with The Equity Alliance (TEA). This group of incredible community leaders aims to secure a more equitable and prosperous future for Black Tennesseans.
In the past we have distributed TEA voting stickers on our to-go cup sleeves and roasted a limited edition coffee to support their efforts. There is still work to be done, and we will continue to lift up their voices in 2022.
As a part of their goal to educate and engage voters, they have compiled free Voter Guides for Tennessee communities in Nashville, Memphis and Chattanooga. Their guides are available below!
The Equity Alliance (TEA) is a Nashville-based, statewide 501(c)(3) nonpartisan, non-profit organization who seeks to equip citizens with tools and strategies to engage in the civic process and empower them to take action on issues affecting their daily lives. TEA believes in using voter education, registration, and engagement as necessary weapons in the fight for social and economic justice – and so do we. Led by a dynamic duo of Black women, the organization is passionate and relentless in building Black civic and economic power. If you would like to donate directly, visit theequityalliance.org
