It’s time to wake up.

Of the more than 6 million people who call Tennessee home, 52 percent are female and 23 percent are children under the age of 18—but they’re often underrepresented or not represented at all in today’s political and policy decisions. Women and children in Tennessee need a voice.

AWAKE advocates for the advancement of women and kids by effecting local and state policy through education, outreach, and research.  Our strategic approach fosters unique partnerships with organizations, communities & elected officials to ensure that the interests of the women and children in Tennessee are heard.

    Thank you to everyone who supported our Stalking Prevention Bill which has now been signed by the Governor. This amendment updates our stalking law for the 21st Century, especially as it relates to social media and third party communication. Special thanks to Jennifer Gillett, Tennessee Coalition to End Domestic & Sexual Violence, You Have the Power, YWCA of Nashville & Middle TN, and the Nashville Sexual Assault Center for their support.
