Women Leading Majority of Local Teams To Restore Common Sense Protections
Nashville---Coordinators to win Amendment 1 have been announced in all 95 Tennessee counties according to Lorene Steffes, Coordinator for Community Education and Board Member of Yes on 1.org
"We are pleased to introduce the statewide grassroots leadership team which will guide our campaign to victory on November 4," Steffes said.
"Yes on 1 is truly grateful to the women and men who have stepped up from every walk of life to provide county support and resources to spread the word about Amendment 1. With their help, Tennesseans are going to be well informed about our state's heartbreaking status as an abortion destination and why we must vote YES in order to restore common sense protections in our state," Steffes continued.
County leaders are working to coordinate local outreach including events, speaking, fundraising and get-out-the vote efforts. They will also serve as distribution points for yard signs and other YES on 1 materials.
"1 of every 4 abortions in our state is performed on a woman or girl from someplace else," said Steffes. "We even lack the legal basis for licensing and inspecting facilities where abortions are performed. The severity of this matter has inspired the 95 leaders to step forward to win Amendment 1 in November, and we are grateful for their dedication and support."
