Strengthening the Voice of Tennessee Voters through Local Engagement

Too few Tennesseans are participating in civic life, particularly at the local level, raising concern among citizens and community leaders alike. 

To combat this trend and share best practices for increasing awareness and participation, ThinkTennessee is joining with city and county mayors across the state to launch the Tennessee Mayors Growing Civic Engagement project.

This first-in-the-nation project will support local leaders in the development of specific civic goals and empower them with strategies, local and national networks and other resources to increase civic engagement and address Tennessee’s voter participation challenges.

Participating mayors will:
  • Set a Goal

  • Build a Plan

  • Take action
