Wednesday, March 4, is the official Day-on-the-Hill for Tennessee Afterschool Network – and our partners, Save the Children and United Ways of Tennessee. We need you to join us to help us educate our Tennessee State Legislators and make an impact for afterschool. Please RSVP for Hill Day at your earliest convenience to Mary Graham at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information, like talking points, handout materials, logistics, ways to join us via social media, and other updates.
We will meet at the Cordell Hull Building from 8:45 to 10:30 a.m., Central Time, so please schedule your visits with your legislators after 10:30 a.m. Central.
To find information on your local legislators, visit http://wapp.capitol.tn.gov/Apps/fmlv3/districts.aspx. Please arrive no later than 8:30 a.m. Central so you can get through the security checks in time to reach our destination. We will meet in Senate Hearing Room 2, which is located on the first floor.
On this day, we will promote the importance of afterschool programming, advocate for optimal spending of the TANF surplus, and educate legislators on the need to reduce youth access to vaping products. On-site, you will receive all the materials and information you need to have successful legislative visits. We will also present Advocacy Champion and Legislative Champion Awards.
We look forward to making Day-on-the-Hill 2020 our most effective ever.
