These outstanding ladies made history! Never before in the State of Tennessee has three Black women been elected to served in the Tennessee State House in the same election cycle.
As we know, this could not have been possible without the combined hard work of these outstanding women and ALL those who worked diligently to help get them elected.
Great things are happening in Tennessee! Tennessee Democrats will continue to press forward and support great candidates regardless of race, creed or color. Photo credit (WTF Women)

Well done, Democratic Women!
TENNESSEE WOMEN'S MARCH 2019
As you know, our Winter Board Meeting was held in February, due to feedback that many of our members wanted to participate in Women's Marches held throughout our state, and the United States.
While the weather was not the best on that day, many, many of our women didn't allow that to stop them from pressing onward.
You are truly an amazing organization of women. It is an honor to have gotten to know you all and see first hand the outstanding work you are doing in our communities across the state.
TFDW President, Glenda F. Carter
