Join us for a day of community, education, and service on March 18, 2024.
We are committed to curating a diverse and inclusive learning environment.
We’ll start off the morning with the Folding Chair Sessions, an Elect Black Women PAC panel of Black leaders who have changed the political landscape in Tennessee. This session will feature Tennessean leaders from across the state, representing state to local office.
After expert advocacy training and community building, we will host a keynote speaker. Stay tuned for the announcement!
Then, we will travel to the Tennessee State Capitol to meet our representatives, participate in legislative advocacy meetings, attend committee meetings, and sit in on a House floor session.
Want to come, but not sure how to make it work?
We are dedicated to making this event accessible to Tennessean women across the state and we would love for you to join us.
Registration is free, and includes breakfast and lunch.
This is a child-friendly event. Bring your little ones! You can never start civic engagement too early!
To address the diversity of women’s issues, we will facilitate four educational workshops in parallel. Stay tuned for the 2024 announcements.

Women’s Day on the Hill is hosted at the Scarritt Bennett Center, a nonprofit conference, retreat, and education center in Nashville, TN. Their mission is to create space where individuals and groups engage each other to achieve a more just world.
Owned by United Women in Faith, the Scarritt Bennett campus is formerly home to United Methodist-related Scarritt College for Christian Workers (1924-1980) and Scarritt Graduate College (1981–1988). Today, Scarritt Bennett Center works to continue the powerful legacy of the Scarritt students, faculty, and staff in the fight for women’s empowerment, racial justice, and dignity for all.
