United Ways of Tennessee (UWTN), the Tennessee Afterschool Network (TAN), and Save the Children are cancelling our Day on the Hill on March 4 due to the aftermath of several tornadoes that struck Nashville, Wilson County, and the greater Middle Tennessee region in the early morning hours of Tuesday, March 3. The Advocacy and Legislative Champion Awards have also been indefinitely postponed.
Due to the tornado in Nashville, Cordell Hull activities have been cancelled until further notice. The Governor has sent some state employees home, roads are closed, and there are still power outages.
Most importantly, our hearts and prayers go out to all the victims of the tornado! We will reschedule a Digital Day on the Hill in the near future.
For more information regarding the damage occuring in Nashville, read this Tennessean article. For information on ways to give, visit United Way of Greater Nashville's Restore the Dream link. You can also text "RESTORE20" to 41444 to donate to the Restore the Dream fund and help with the tornado relief now.
Thank you for your understanding. If you have any questions, email Mary Graham at [email protected].
