Martin Methodist College is hosting a Conversation on Amendment One to the Tennessee State Constitution that is on the November ballot. The Conversation will be between two experts on the subject of the Amendment, one who supports the Amendment and one who opposes it. There will be time set aside for questions from the audience.
The objective is to have a civil and informative discourse which will provide a clear understanding of the issues surrounding the Amendment.
Amendment One would give the legislature broad authority to enact restrictions on abortion that are currently prohibited under the rights to privacy that women currently have under the Tennessee Constitution.
Our presenters will be Lorene Steffes, a businesswoman and trainer for the advocacy group "Yes On One" (for the amendment) and Sara Beth Myers, an attorney and founder of Advocacy for Women's and Kids' Equality (AWARE) (against the amendment). The event will be moderated by Dr. Melissa Bruniga-Matteau, Assistant Professor of History at Martin Methodist College.
Seating is limited to 125, with preference given to students at Martin Methodist College. The remaining seats will be given to members of the public based on RSVPs. If you would like to come, please RSVP here, and we will notify you if we cannot seat you. Otherwise, assume that you got your RSVP in early enough to obtain a seat.
No one will be seated without an RSVP.
This event is co-sponsored by the Martin Methodist College Democrats, and the Giles County Democratic Party.
