Stronger Together: Rural Outreach Project

In 2019, the Council partnered with N&R Publications to create a special newspaper insert publication that was distributed through local papers in 6 rural counties across TN - Lake, Henry, Hardeman, DeKalb, Bledsoe and Hawkins. The publication shares stories of Tennesseans who have been affected by the Council's work and are contributing to their local communities in all kinds of ways.

In 2020, we expanded our distribution of the publication to dozens more rural counties across the state and added 3 stories on the back cover from our Council members reflecting on the 30th anniversary of the passage of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) in July 2020.
