Postcards and Beer

Postcard-writing.jpg

We will be writing postcards to TN legislators on two issues:
 1) in support of in-state tuition for children of immigrants, mostly DACA Dreamers, who are actually residents of TN, and
2) in opposition to the FOCUS Act which changes the UT governing board to put it in the hands of GOP, to assure outsourcing, which got defeated, and in general take over the UT system. 

Also, we can write to our Members of Congress in DC in support of laws already introduced in Congress that provide some steps that will help to prevent gun violence in this country.  We provide cards and information about the bills and some suggestions for what to write on your postcard.  Beer will be your choice!
