Tennessee Equality Project is a statewide organization dedicated to promote and sustain the equality of gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender persons in the State of Tennessee through the establishment of fair and equitable laws protecting these rights and the elimination of laws that would seek to counter this effort. TEP was founded on June 1 5, 2004 by members of the GLBT community in Nashville, TN in an effort to organize a group of committed citizens who believe in protecting the rights of GLBT persons in Tennessee. While the Tennessee Legislature is in session, we monitor our legislators and have a full-time lobbyist on the hill representing the GLBT community. In addition, TEP encourages and provides the resources for Tennesseans to contact their representatives regarding specific legislation that affects the GLBT community in Tennessee.
Led the grassroots efforts to support the Metro Council in passing the 2009 and 2011 Metropolitan Nashville non-discrimination ordinances Received the 2011 Nashville CABLE Power of Inclusion Award Successfully fought discriminatory adoption bills in the State Legislature Successfully advocated on behalf of a woman who was initially denied the ability to visit her partner in a local health care facility despite Medicare rules Trained hundreds of people across the state to advocate for equality with their legislators
WHAT IS OLYMPUS?Our incredible city of Nashville has always been known as the Athens of the South. Our rich culture of music, art, and entertainment brings a unique set of culture to the state of Tennessee. Centerpiece of Nashvilles moniker, the Parthenon is set in Centennial Park. Originally built in 1 897 for the Tennessee Centennial Exposition, it is now one of our most incredible museums and houses the Goddess of Athena. Just as Athena protected the just warriors of ancient Greece, TEP tirelessly wages an uphill battle to bring equality to all citizens of the State of Tennessee. For this reason, we feel the location is perfect for TEPs first ever annual fundraiser, Olympus. Olympus will allow TEP to continue to work with all of Tennessee to educate, promote and elect GLBT friendly leaders, and help protect and secure true equality for all of Tennessee. Olympus will be a greek themed night to remember, so break out the Gladiator and Centurion dress. We will have copious food and plentiful drink, and plenty of musical talent for entertainment. Additionally, we will be presenting our first annual Excellence in Equality awards to several key allies across the state. This evening will be all about celebrating our victories and rejoicing with our friends and allies. The ancient Greeks set the bar high on toasting a victorious campaign and we expect nothing less in the Athens of the South. By becoming a sponsor, you will help us launch Olympus, which will set the groundwork for another year of battling for equality in our home state of Tennessee. Thank you in advance for your support and I look forward to seeing you soon. William R. Fuson Tennessee Equality Project
