Over the course of the spring 2016 session of the General Assembly, in anticipation of a vote on Tuition Equality in the Tennessee House, AKIN convened a working group of people of faith to try to make sure that area representatives heard from faith leaders supportive of Tuition Equality.  Eventually two letters were circulated within local faith circles.  The texts were similar, with one speaking from a Christian perspective and the other from an interfaith perspective.   Together the letters were signed by ninety faith leaders from Knoxville and surrounding communities, from a range of different denominations and faith traditions, people who live and worship in many legislative districts across our area.  The letters were sent to over a dozen members of the Tennessee House.
