Tennessee Equality Project Foundation
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 15, 2004 by members of our 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 our community. In addition, TEP encourages and provides the resources for Tennesseans to contact their representatives regarding specific legislation related to issues of equality and discrimination in Tennessee.
Since inception, TEP and TEP Foundation have been proud members of the Equality Federation, a nationwide membership and support organization for independent state LGBT advocacy organizations.
