This Saturday, United Women of Tennessee (UWTN) is hosting a “Freedom Fest” with live music, crafters, and food. Proceeds from Freedom Fest will go to the Alicia Lundquist Memorial Scholarship Fund for Conservative Women. Admission is free.
Freedom Fest will take place from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. CST at the Bunganut Pig in Franklin. A total of 20 crafters and vendors from across the state will be present, selling local goods including jewelry, clothing, and more. Live music will be provided by local talents Doug Mathis, Austin Daniels, and Sami Lin. The Bunganut Pig will feature a variety of food specials.
The United Women of Tennessee (UWTN) is gaining traction as a novel mentorship program for young conservative women statewide. UWTN started off with a bang: their first guest speaker was Senator Marsha Blackburn (R-TN), who discussed her book “The Mind of a Conservative Women.”
In an interview with The Tennessee Star, UWTN Founder Gloria Giorno explained that she couldn’t find groups connecting and empowering young women with conservative-leaning older women, opportunities, and education. Giorno said her goal is to show them that conservative women are educated and successful mothers, daughters, sisters, Christians who are able to work and have a family life, if they so choose.
