The 2020 Census
Mandated by the Constitution, the Census is conducted every 10 years and is used to apportion government resources and representation based on population counts. It directly affects how much money is available to your community.
With Nashville’s explosive growth it is especially important that everyone makes sure they are counted, so we can get the resources we need.

Protect the Voting Rights Act
In 2013 the Supreme Court gutted the Voting Rights Act of 1965 enabling voter suppression through unreasonable voter ID laws, voter registration restrictions, voter purges, large-scale felony disenfranchisement, and gerrymandering of voting districts
Congress recently passed the Voting Rights Advancement Act aimed at restoring the protections of the 1965 Voting Rights Act.
Tell your Senators to support the Voting Rights Advancement Act and do their duty to protect our democracy!
