The special legislative session last week, and fallout from the last general session, are helping us prepare for the legislature to convene again in January. We are going to have a busy year and are gearing up. Read more on Advocacy developments below and be ready to engage in the new year.
We wanted to recognize all the incredible leaders that were recently recognized and are connected to our chamber. I am honored to be among, board, members, and partners that were featured in all 7 categories of the Nashville Business Journal’s Power 100. Our network works hard year-round to make Nashville a diverse and equitable place to do business. Help us congratulate these folks and check out the full list here.
This week, Lambda Legal, the American Civil Liberties Union, and the ACLU of Tennessee filed a lawsuit challenging a Tennessee law excluding transgender youth from participating in school sports.
We worked hard to stop this bill from becoming law and we are hopeful the ACLU case will stop this discrimination from continuing against our trans youth. Read the full press release here.
