About Us

ForwardTN is a non-profit project dedicated to elevating voices of forward-thinking Tennesseans who want to a balanced approach to government where policy affecting the wellbeing of people’s lives is shaped by evidence and results, instead of extreme partisan ideology.

ForwardTN’s goal is to educate Tennesseans about the negative effects extreme policies, certain elected leaders and organizations have on their quality of life through organizing, social media and action.  ForwardTN provides issue and opinion research, shared message development, technical assistance and shared technology and resources to partner progressive advocacy groups.

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 promotes public policies which make Tennessee a fairer, healthier, more equitable state by advocating solutions to critical community challenges.
