TN Women’s March 2.0

Healing Waters Founder, Cynthia Harris, MPH, will be participating in the TN Women’s March 2.0’s Artivism Panel, representing Actors Bridge Ensemble and their autobiographical writing program, Act Like a Grrrl, Inc.  Ms. Harris is excited to talk about her ongoing work with the arts-based youth development program and the importance of women coming to voice.  The Artivism panel will “explore the convergence of arts and activism in breaking the silence, healing division, and reclaiming creative energy.”

Please see details below and visit https://tnpowertogether.org/ for more information.

 

Before the march,
Power Together TN will host a half-day conference focused on educating and empowering attendees to become engaged on local and state levels. Conference session topics are artivism, faith and spirituality, grassroots organizing, youth, legislative skills and issues, understanding elections, and a federal and gubernatorial candidate forum. Several prominent organizations will host the sessions, including Emerge Tennessee, American Civil Liberties Union of Tennessee, Planned Parenthood, the Tennessee Immigrants & Refugee Coalition, Showing Up for Racial Justice, and Black Lives Matter Memphis Chapter. “The success of this year’s march is vitally important to continuing the work we started last year,” said Francie Hunt, executive director of Tennessee Advocates for Planned Parenthood. “We are transitioning from a time of simply resisting the bad policies of this administration to
proactively moving forward with our vision in which every woman, regardless of race, gender, socioeconomic status, disability or citizenship, is able to care for herself and nurture her family free from structural impediments.”

The conference and caucus luncheons will be held at Tennessee State University’s Avon
Williams Campus from 8 a.m.–2 p.m. Full registration details and tickets can be found at
