The Day on the Hill is an annual policy and action day, where women across the state meet in Nashville to speak directly with their representatives. For AAUW of Tennessee, the Day on the Hill is the culmination of work done by the Advocacy Campaign to transform the Equal Pay initiative into law.

A GUIDE FOR TENNESSEE VOTERS

2016 Election and 2017 Legislative Session

AAUW of Tennessee is pleased to offer you this nonpartisan voter guide on the issues of the Pay Gap and the Insurance Gap as they exist in our state. We encourage you to use this as a guide for listening to and interacting with candidates running for office this election—particularly those seeking office in the Tennessee legislature. By speaking out on these issues, we can help to shape the conversation both now, during the election, and later, once the newly seated state legislature convenes in 2017. Shaping that conversation is crucial if we want to make Tennessee a better place for women and girls to work and learn.
