As a volunteer-led organization we depend on our members for our successful projects:


Registering New Voters                                                                

Thousands of newcomers move to the Nashville area each year.  Help them become part of our community by registering them to vote.

Contact Hazel Thornton ( to find out when the next registration activity will take place.


Living in a Democracy: How to Become an Active Citizen

We are planning a series of small and  informal teas with women who have recently become citizens to give them the information and the confidence to vote and participate fully as active members of the Nashville community.  Can you help make this project a success?

Contact Hasina Mohyuddin,  or Tamanna Quereshi,


Outreach to High Schools

Volunteers are needed to support high school registration in Davidson County, by providing the resources first time voters need. Registration will take place in each high school in the county in the spring semester, but our planning will begin this fall.

Look at these two students  who found the perfect way to celebrate their 18th birthdays by registering.

Contact Hazel Thornton ( if you are available to help.


OBSERVER CORPS: Providing independent observations of government at work

Observer Corps volunteers attend public meetings of elected officials and governmental boards, note what happens, and report back to LWV members and the community.

Through their presence, they encourage transparent and accountable government.  It is also an excellent way to learn how government works.

Contact Winnie Forrester to learn more.


Planning and presenting community programs and forums

Helping the public understand issues and policies that impact our community is an important and exciting part of our focus.

We are expanding our monthly programming.  We need your help in launching these.  And be sure to let us know the topics that interest you the most.

Contact Ginna Foster Cannon if you are available to help.


Women’s History Celebrations                                               

Our annual fall event is October 19th at  the historic Hermitage Hotel –where the final battle for women’s suffrage was waged.

Other exciting celebrations include a commemoration of Women’s Equality Day, May Day, and a collaboration with the Nashville Ballet telling the suffrage story to new audiences.
