TEP taking off in Memphis area; 3rd birthday party Friday
We are pleased to announce the formation of the TEP Shelby County Committee to serve the Memphis area. Veteran community leaders Tommy Simmons and Jonathan Cole have agreed to chair the effort. The committee will begin organizing this weekend during Mid-South Pride in Memphis. Make sure to stop by the TEP table if you are in Memphis on Saturday.
Tommy and Jonathan say it best in their own words. According to Tommy, “Shelby County, the largest county in Tennessee and one with arguably the most progressive delegation in the General Assembly, is fertile ground for spreading equality and eradicating prejudice throughout the state. I look forward to expanding my work with TEP in order to promote fair and equitable laws not only in Memphis and Shelby County, but also throughout all ninety-five counties in Tennessee.”
Jonathan adds, “I am excited about the synergistic possibilities that this new appointment creates. The new Shelby County Committee will strengthen TEP’s ability to influence statewide issues affecting equal rights for LGBT citizens. The resources of TEP will also strengthen the ability of LGBT citizens in Shelby County to more effectively influence local decision makers in county and city government.”
If you would like to contact the TEP Shelby County Committee, send an email to ShelbyCounty@tnequalityproject.com. Look for the formation of additional county committees this summer.
Reminder: If you’re in Nashville this weekend, attend Wanderlust this Friday. For more information, go to http://www.TheBrooksFund.org. After that, head to Tribe on Church Street at 10:00 for TEP’s 3rd birthday party. We’ll celebrate three years of fighting for you with give-aways, cake, and good friends.
