Why We Exist

Our Mission

ChangeTN started in 2020 with the goal of assisting candidates running for office in Tennessee, from town councils to governor’s seat and everything in between. We want every candidate to have the support they need to win regardless if their district is blue, red, or purple. Moving the needle and making Tennessee the next Progressive stronghold is a process that cannot be completed in one election cycle, but we are determined to move this state forward from Mountain City to Memphis.


ChangeTN offers endorsements for candidates running for office and we advocate for these campaigns. 


Before that takes place we help to teach prospective candidates how to run for office, connect them to the resources they need to succeed, and help local county parties and organizations spread their message to their communities. Once endorsed, we will invest ad dollars (digital, television, and mail) into their campaigns.


We treat every candidate as the next seat holder for their race. ChangeTN isn’t just about this election or the next; our organization focuses on what this state should look like 10 years from now.

What's at


Every individual in Tennessee has the right to make decisions about their own body. Unfortunately, our legislators don’t think that’s the case and want to take that right away. Tennessee is one of 13 states with “trigger laws” that will outlaw abortion once the Supreme Court overturns Roe v. Wade.


Over 80% of Tennesseans agree that cannabis legalization needs to happen. Despite that overwhelming majority, the supermajority would still waste our tax dollars on criminalizing something that 19 states (and counting) did away with.


Under the “guidance” of Gov. Lee and the supermajority, the state of Tennessee has become one of the most gun-friendly states in the nation. Gun violence is Tennessee’s number one public health and safety concern. Enough is enough. We need a safe Tennessee.


Public Schools are the backbone of Tennessee. They provide everyone, regardless of their background, access to quality education. Because of this, education reaches beyond the classroom. But the supermajority doesn’t believe in this foundational pillar. Take a stand with us to take a stand for our public schools.

Ending the Slate of Hate

If anything is constant about the Tennessee legislature, it’s that each year they chip away at the freedoms of the LGBTQ+ community through the heralded “Slate of Hate.” Instead of focusing on what can be done to combat skyrocketing housing prices, shrinking wages, or the laundry list of other issues, the supermajority continues to invest their energy attacking the most vulnerable Tennesseans.
