Coffee with Candidates and Caregivers

Sarah's picture

The Tennessee Disability Coalition and AARP Tennessee are beginning a series of events called “Coffee with Candidates & Caregivers” during this primary election season. We want to create a relaxed environment for aging voters, voters with disabilities and the people who care about them to meet with their legislative candidates. We will be hosting a number of coffees across the state in Summer 2016. Our goal is to make it easy for community members to get to know their candidates and ask questions that matter to them.

The 109th General Assembly concluded its business on the afternoon of Friday April 22, 2016.

The 2016 legislative session may have only been four months long, but a lot was accomplished by our elected officials. 

Here are some highlights from the 2016 Legislative Session
