    Good Morning,


    I hope all is well. As we both know, bus safety throughout the state of Tennessee has been a trending topic as a result of the recent crashes in the Chattanooga area last year.


    As a result, my team and I have developed a resource for your audience to quickly view the steps that are being taken as a result, address policy questions, as well as interact and let lawmakers hear the opinions of citizens. Its an all inclusive, informative resource and can be found by visiting www.knowledgeinitiative.org/bus-safety


    Is this something you could add to your website, so we can better educate Tennesseans about safety measures being developed? I look forward to hearing from you!


    Thanks,

    Landon

    Good afternoon,


    I just finished reading through some of the pages on awaketn.org, and I noticed that you offered a lot of resources for parents on child safety.


    I’d love to recommend another resource for your site.


    Recently, the Tennessee Legislature has been debating a bill that would require seat belts to be added to all Tenn. school buses. I just finished a website on this topic, and I’d love for you to take a look at it and possibly share it with your readers. It gives an overview of the issue to parents who may not know much about bus safety.


    You can view the resource here: www.billeasterly.com/tn-bus-safety/


    If you could consider sharing this resource to raise awareness about this topic, I would appreciate it. Feel free to let me know if you have any questions. I’m including several ways of contacting me below.


    Have a great week!

    I know that this is late notice but I’d love to invite your members out to Comedy out the Yazoo this Wednesday March 22nd. I have a female heavy show and I’m also one of the only female comedy bookers in the south. I work very hard on this show and this month we are sponsored by Yazoo Brewing Company and YWCA. Every time someone purchases a ticket for the show using the YWCA coupon the proceeds will all go towards empowering women affected by domestic violence. It would mean a lot to me if you would help me promote this event. I am happy to send you the digital flier and I’d love to see some of your awesome members at the show. It starts at 7:30pm! Would love to connect with like minded women in the greater Nashville area. Every month we work with a different organization so I’d love for you to come check it out and perhaps work with us in the future.

    Hello!

    I’m Skyler, a volunteer with the Protect Our Parks campaign in partnership with The Wilderness Society. The campaign is primarily concerned with demonstrating public support around the issue of protecting our public lands and some of the most important legislation that creates and maintains these systems, such as the Antiquities Act and the Land and Water Conservation Fund. The goal of this grassroots effort is to demonstrate to our elected officials (specifically, Senators Corker and Alexander) that their constituents care about protecting parks and public lands, and want them to stand up to defend these critically important green spaces and laws should they face attack in Congress.


    I’m writing to let you know about the major visibility event of the Protect Our Parks campaign, the rally that we’re having next weekend. We’re working to get as large a turnout as possible so we can demonstrate to the media and to the senators that the issue of protecting our shared green space has broad impact and matters deeply to many Tennesseans! Can you please forward the announcement below to your email list? It would be a huge help in our effort to spread the word!


    Please feel free to contact me or the campaign organizer, Emma Gleeman (203-610-2767, emma.gleeman@publicinterestnetwork.org) if you have any questions about the rally or the campaign!


    Thanks so much,

    Rally to Protect Our Parks and Public Lands!


    Join the Protect Our Parks campaign on Saturday, March 18th at 11:00 a.m. at the West End Building (3322 West End Avenue) for a rally to show support for our public lands! The Protect Our Parks campaign, a grassroots effort here in Nashville in partnership with The Wilderness Society, is working to demonstrate to our elected officials that we care deeply about protecting our shared green space. We need our public lands as sources of clean air and water, wildlife habitats, space to explore and play with our families, important pieces of our nation’s heritage, and stimuli for our local economy. Efforts to sell off federal public land for development or weaken the legislation that allows for future conservation of green space, such as the Antiquities Act, are an affront to some of the spaces we hold dearest. Here in Tennessee, we want to show Senators Corker and Alexander that their constituents care deeply about their taking a strong stance to protect our public lands. Speakers from local groups will be present. Please RSVP to the Facebook event, and feel free to bring signs and other visuals, friends and family, and well-behaved dogs. See you there!

    Hello. I’m wondering if you have any legal resources available to support me as I go to court to get a temporary order of protection against my ex boyfriend extended due to stalking and harassment over the last 8 months.

    Good Afternoon,


    In honor of the 100th year of Girl Scouting in the middle Tennessee region, the Girl Scouts of Middle Tennessee is in the process of compiling a list of 100 former Girl Scouts that are of influence in middle Tennessee. We would love to know whether or not Sara Beth Myers was a part of Girl Scouts at any point in her life, a simple yes or no response will be sufficient. No further information will be necessary at this time. Thank you, and we look forward to your response.


    Best,

    Check Out This New Book Your Membership/Staff Will Enjoy! Great As Gifts, Too!

    The book is entitled: “The Lives Some People Live: Uncovering One Family Killer.” The book deals with the issue of adultery within families. The writing is unique, powerful and raw. Your members won’t put the book down!! Men will definitely enjoy this read. The emotion and passion are real and intense. Males show great openness and honesty as they deal with the issue of infidelity within their own households. The readers witness firsthand how families deal with the horrific events involving their situations. Women, too, find their voices amid a convergence of problems. Wonderful book! Enjoy.

    Hello!

    I am trying to find vendors for the Be well Murfreesboro Health fair. I am wondering if AWAKE would be open to doing a presentation on healthy relationships. There is not a firm date yet, but it will be in April. Please let me know if this is something that your organization would be open to and I will give more details. Thanks!
