DDH 2022: TeamWork TN

While the pandemic meant that we were NOT able to meet in person, it provided a tremendous opportunity for Tennesseans from across the state to meet with their representatives, face-to-virtual-face. This year we built on that opportunity by putting together teams of fierce Tennesseans who advocated for systems and policies that WORK and called out systems and policies that DON’T WORK. This year it was all about TeamWork!

Join a Regional Facebook Group 

As a part of DDH 2022, we are launching regional Facebook groups to bring together fierce disability advocates in their local communities. Our goal for these groups is to support regional networking, help prepare you for meeting with legislators, and be champions for each other long-term.
