Diversity Committee

The Diversity Committee’s primary purpose is to promote the Democratic Party’s principles and ideals of diversity and inclusion throughout Williamson County, TN. We work to spread the message that all people are created equal and that the Democratic Party will always fight to end discrimination based on race, ethnicity, national origin, language, religion, gender, age, sexual orientation, gender identity or disability. We work to establish and foster relationships with diverse organizations throughout middle TN—and more specifically, Williamson County—through outreach and community support.
