Everyone deserves a job that pays a livable wage, access to healthy food, safe neighborhoods, quality health care, and affordable housing. But some folks are excluded from accessing these basic needs because of unfair policies that create barriers to health in underserved communities. Changing existing laws and policies is the most effective method for undoing the harms of harmful policies and advancing health equity across Tennessee.
In this unprecedented time our work is more important than ever, so we have decided to “throw a fit” for healthcare and we are inviting groups across the state to join us on Saturday, November 20th us for a statewide virtual rally to amplify the collective voices in our state demanding affordable healthcare coverage. Participants will have an opportunity to hear from health justice advocates, faith and clergy leaders, and HBCU representatives. Participants will also learn about ways to take action.
