In 2018, we began hosting our annual Statewide Policy Conferences that have drawn several thousand women from Tennessee and the tri-state area. Each conference is a retrospect of the work in Empowerment, Health, and Justice during the preceding year - and thoughtful discussion of what needs to happen in the future. Included are speakers from all over the country whose work impacts the status of women.
