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 is dedicated to advocating 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.
