Time to Rally! Tennessee County Commission Meetings
It is time to rally! Your presence is needed at county commission meetings in Carter, Unicoi, Hawkins, and Washington counties, where resolutions supporting biblical marriage are being considered! This is an opportunity to stand with and encourage your neighbors in nearby counties and support their call for righteousness and justice in the public square.
Residents of these counties have discovered from their commissioners that out-of-county supporters are welcome at these meetings and encouraged to come out in support (only county residents will speak).
The TN Equality Project is rallying opposition to appear at all of these meetings, they will be wearing red shirts and speaking for the LGBT agenda!
WHAT YOU CAN DO TO DO TO SUPPORT YOUR NEIGHBORS:
- ATTEND as many of the meetings listed below as you can. Go early to ensure you get a seat. If there were no seats left for the red shirts that would be excellent! DO NOT WEAR RED it’s the team color of the opposing team
- INVITE others to attend and show their support of biblical marriage. We need to fill these rooms with supporters.
- CONTACT: if you live in any of these counties, contact the commissioners before the meeting and encourage them to support the resolution (by phone is best, links to contact info below).
- SPEAK. If you are a county resident and would like to be involved with an organized effort to speak at the meeting in your county please reply and let us know so we can connect you with others in your county.
