"The first truth is that the liberty of a democracy is not safe if the people tolerate the growth of private power to a point where it becomes stronger than their democratic state itself. That, in its essence, is fascism — ownership of government by an individual, by a group, or by any other controlling private power. ”
— Franklin D. Roosevelt
It’s time to confront the assault begun by the 107th Tennessee General Assembly on women, workers, teachers, LGBT people, disabled people, minorities, people of faith, immigrants and the elderly. Join fellow advocates on Sunday, June 12, 2011 at 3 PM on the steps of First Congregational Church to make your voice heard.
We were promised small government, but got big government intrusion instead. Help send a message that we look to Tennessee state government to promote women’s health, fair labor standards, workplace equality, safe schools, policies that respect people of all faith traditions or no faith tradition, responsible immigration policy, and the right to vote.
If you belong to an organization or church that agrees with these values, please encourage your members and supporters to attend by sharing this event by email or Facebook.
