8/24/2022 5:30:00 PM - Legislative & Victim Advocacy Community Meeting

Event Date: 8/24/2022 5:30:00 PM through 8/24/2022 6:30:00 PM

Join us for the next conversation on how the overturning of Roe v. Wade has been impacting survivors of sexual assault and what you can do about it. Sexual Assault Center (SAC) has always provided trauma informed, victim-centered services and support; the Supreme Court’s decision to overturn Roe v Wade will not change SAC’s approach to the care we provide. Currently Tennessee has no exceptions for rape and incest when it comes to abortion access. Paramount to our mission and healing for survivors is to protect the rights, decisions, and control over their health and healing.

This meeting is a bipartisan discussion where people can learn and share ideas respectfully in a safe space. Sign up today to reserve your spot! Location to be announced.
