On January 20, 2018, the anniversary of the Women’s March, we are calling on you to join us in the Women’s March 2.0: Power Together TN in Nashville, TN. This morning conference and march to an afternoon rally is the follow-up action we all promised -- that we would unite and persist!  What is the 2.0 part of Women's March 2.0?  We knew that marching would be not enough to kick us off for 2018, which is midterm election year and a time to transform our anger into something more powerful, transcendent and sustainable. Thousands will choose to attend the conference for an entire day of activism, and thousands more will join us for the march and rally for free. TICKETS ARE FOR THE CONFERENCE AND CAUCUS LUNCHEONS. No one will be turned away for inability to pay.  Conference topics will include: Artivism - The role of creativity in social justice; artistic voice = activist voice; using music, dance, theater, film, visual and performance arts for civic engagement Faith and Spirituality- Dealing with trauma; spiritual and moral life of progressives; self-care to stave off burnout; people of faith; values and politics Grassroots Organizing - Skills-building; understanding and managing power; direct action; ensuring safety and security at demonstrations Youth - Leadership development; connecting campuses throughout the state Legislative Skills and Issues - How bills become law; how to lobby; dealing with legislators; specific issues impacting women, communities of color, youth LGBTQ+,  individuals with disabilities, indigenous communities, the earth and our environment etc... Understanding Elections - Voter registration; how to become a candidate; Get Out The Vote From Resistance to Persistence! Last January, during inaugural weekend, over 20,000 people marched in our state’s capital, with an estimated 15,000 Tennesseans marching in Knoxville, Memphis, Chattanooga and Jonesborough and DC. This was an important moment of unity, but we know that uniting is just the beginning. There is great work to be done and we must organize our efforts to effect change.  Most importantly, Tennesseans from all walks of life will gather to connect and support one another, to demonstrate that we are not alone as we face a barrage of political assaults on our communities. We aim to foster a sense of belonging, create a space for learning, and kickoff 2018 with sustained meaningful action. Visit TnPowerTogether.org for event details. Register now to unite and persist! We never want finances to be a barrier for participation, so if you cannot afford one the registration levels below, contact us at [email protected] to let us know and we will make sure you can attend.

Hosted by Internationally Award Winning Poet & Comedian Queen Sheba as seen on Verses & Flow 106 & Park Apollo Theater and 9-Year-Host Famous 4th Sundays, in Atlanta, leads ‪#‎TeamPoetry‬ against Tyke T Guest Captain of the selected Memphis emcess on #TeamHipHop. In each city we look for the 5 best poets to side with Queen Sheba on #TeamPoetry and we look for a roving, guest 'Captain' of the emcees + Hip-Hop artists to oppose the poets and see who's got the best lyrics & stage show! How it works:  5 Memphis Poets will go head-to-head with 5 Memphis Emcees in a FRIENDLY, all Peace and all Love "battle". Queen Sheba will call up one poet and one emcee for each round, they are REQUIRED to hug (or dap or show eachother love in some way) to emphasize the bridging of gaps and culture - then the Poet and the Emcee performs one at a time; with the order being alternated each round. Round I if a poet starts, then an emcee will start the second round. Each artist is encouraged to perform their BEST work in a 4 minute time period - then at the end of each round the audience cheers wildly, throws money, stomps on the floor and goes bananas for their favorite performance. The team who wins the best out of 5 rounds wins! What do you win?!: Bragging rights! Connections, new friends, networking. Healing people's hearts. Saving someone from a messed up relationship. These are all the things you REALLY win! And then, you get to Snapchat all your friends and tell them you won your round and your team won the battle! Most shows, the winners of each round get to choose between a mystery envelope with a small cash stipend (YAY! Chicken and Waffles for everyone!) -OR- some Poetry vs. Hip-Hop (PvHH) swag.  At the end of the show: Audience members are introduced to the best Poetry, Spoken Word & Hip-Hop your city has to offer and you will leave feeling empowered and light hearted, cheering, hugging and taking picture with everyone! The artists are reminded they are the pulse of their community and are continued to be inspired to produce great works to heal the world. ...and our small, touring, crew that makes up PvHH goes back to our hotel room, or airbnb or someone's home who was kind enough to house us ... feeling fulfilled and exhausted .... ready to plan our next trip! (Hint...hint... this means bring us to your city!)
