We support coalitions that promote forward-thinking policies that make Tennessee a fairer, healthier, more equitable state.

Current coalitions we are supporting:


A coalition of Tennessee Doctors and Health Care workers advocating for the health and wellbeing of their patients and all Tennesseans.


Across our country Christian theology has been exploited to promote policies that harm our communities and isolate us from our neighbors. The Southern Christian Coalition is a coalition of clergy, people of faith and faith leaders speaking up for Christian values.


A coalition of Tennessee local and small business owners advocating for policy solutions that promote small business growth and prosperity to create a strong and vibrant economy.


TNDF is a Tennessee not-for-profit corporation that is operating as a project of ForwardTN. It was formed to increase the public debate about democracy in Tennessee and to make the case for a pro-democracy agenda in the state. Beginning in 2022, TNDF will host a series of Conversations on Democracy – both in person and remote – that include a bi-partisan group of national leaders on economic and political democracy. Forums will be open to the public.


A coalition responding to lawmakers who have have carved up Tennessee, creating an unprecedented gerrymander, subverting the will of voters, and eroding representation for communities of color.
