About Us

ForwardTN is a 501(c)3 non-partisan, non-profit organization that supports causes and organizations working to make Tennessee a fairer, healthier and more equitable state.

ForwardTN focuses on elevating voices that educate the public and expose the harmful effects of extreme partisan or corrupt policies, leaders and organizations on the wellbeing of Tennessean lives and serves as a resource to bring diverse, marginalized, or suppressed voices into public debate who need to be heard. 

The goal: public policy that improves lives and is supported by evidence and results, instead of extreme partisan ideology.

ForwardTN provides issue and opinion research, shared message development, technical assistance and shared technology and resources to partner groups and causes.

We monitor the statewide political landscape, identifying extreme legislative actions and other policy changes that could affect your life. We tell you about them quickly and let you know what you can do about them.

We are determined to see Tennessee be a great place to work, live and raise a family. To that end, Forward TN raises the visibility of issues that affect the quality of life in our state.

Forward Tennessee supports coalitions promoting policies that make Tennessee a fairer, healthier, more equitable state.
