WTF is inspired by the thousands of people in Tennessee and across the nation that are rising up in peaceful protests and demonstrations to demand justice in the murder of George Floyd. Black Lives Matter and we stand in solidarity with the organizations, activists, and organizers leading this movement to demand reform to our criminal justice system including police practices, the use of force and aggressive policing.
But we need protest AND politics, as President Barack Obama noted earlier this week:
WTF is laser focused on electoral politics and supporting diverse women who will advocate change that represents our values.
On Tuesday, WTF participated in the #BlackOutTuesday movement on Instagram to make space for Black voices and leaders. Today, we ask that you invest in making sure Black women are heard now, on Election Day, and at the State Capitol in Nashville.
You can help WTF elect more Black women to office at the local and state level in Tennessee. WTF has endorsed three Black women who are running strong campaigns for the State Legislature.
Please chip in $25, $35, $50 or more to each of their campaigns right now:
100% of your contribution goes directly to their campaigns.
Thank you in advance for generously supporting our endorsed candidates. Together we will #ElectWTFWomen.
Women for Tennessee’s Future
