Women for Tennessee’s Future (WTF) Hires its First Executive Director

Nashville, TN – Women for Tennessee’s Future (WTF), a political action committee dedicated to electing progressive women to state and local office in Tennessee, has hired Sarah McCall as its first executive director to lead the organization’s strategic growth during a critical election year for progressive women in Tennessee.

“Women for Tennessee’s Future is pleased to welcome Sarah McCall as our first executive director. Sarah’s wealth of political and fundraising experience and her strong commitment to WTF’s mission are exactly what we need to take our organization forward,” said Bonnie Dow, WTF co-founder and treasurer. “We at WTF are excited about this next chapter in our 6-year history as we work to bring progressive women into political leadership in Tennessee—one candidate and one election at a time.”

McCall brings experience from working with political campaigns across the country and recently served as campaign manager for Anne Martin’s successful 2018 bid for Chancery Court Judge in Davidson County. McCall came to Tennessee two years ago to consult on the launch of Emerge Tennessee, after previously working with Emerge America, a nationwide organization that recruits and trains Democratic women to run for office. While with Emerge America, she also served as the founding executive director of Emerge Vermont. McCall most recently served as WTF’s statewide expansion director.

“I am honored to join WTF as executive director and I look forward to using my experience and skills to build on our recent successes. Tennessee is at a critical moment as more progressive women are running for office than ever before,” McCall said. “I look forward to working with our stakeholders and supporters to ensure progressive women in Tennessee have the resources they need to run for office and win their campaigns.”

Founded as a grass-roots organization in 2012, WTF has endorsed over 30 progressive women running for state and local office since 2013 and has invested over $75,000 in their campaigns. WTF-endorsed candidates who currently serve in elected office include: Nashville Metro Councilwomen Mina Johnson, Nancy VanReece and Tanaka Vercher; Knoxville City Councilwomen Lauren Rider and Seema Singh –Perez; and Hamilton County Commissioner-Elect Katherlyn Geter.
