The Weekly

Wrap Up

February 25, 2022

What the Chamber worked on this week and what you need to know.

CEO Brief

Advocacy, education, and connection were all worked on this week and all produced some incredible results.

 

ADVOCATE - We had a very active week at the State Legislature with bills being heard, and conversations with legislators being had about the issues with discriminatory bills. Good progress was made and we are ready to do it again next week and are hopeful for some positive results. 

 

EDUCATE - Our first in-person Classroom Connect was held at the Entrepreneur Center on Thursday. The Grow With Google topic of "Making your Website Work for You" was taught by our incredible members Tolbert Marketing & Events. A big thank you to them, I learned so much and I bet you will too, watch the video and find out.

 

CONNECT - We hosted an incredible program with Music City Baseball/Nashville Stars on Wednesday. The event touched on Black and LGBT history, coming out stories, inclusion and acceptance in business and in sports, and powerful and emotional stories of being your true self and having someone to look up to. It was one of my favorite events we have done and I hope you will watch the video of the program below. Then I highly recommended reading the book “Singled Out” by Andrew Maraniss. 

 

Thank you to all that made the week so successful, and thank you to all the members of the Chamber.

ADVOCATE

All of our bills on our Priority Bill List are up next week. We have been working with our members to talk to committee members, and are hopeful that we will be able to stop some. We are thankful to all those that have engaged in direct action, testimony, and conversations this week.

 

For individuals, our partners the Tennessee Equality Project have several campaigns active. We hope you will take action.  

 

Large corporate businesses are being asked to sign the national letter that our partners Freedom For All Americans and the HRC are coordinating. This letter is being used here as a way to show the wide national objection to these bills from corporations.
