Advocates Chrissy Hood and Shannon Grimes worked together to start the Tennessee chapter of the Changing Spaces Campaign.

They strongly believe that everyone deserves dignity which drives them to advocate for accessible changing stations in their state.

Both women are mothers to children who have a disability, and have the need for accessible changing spaces.

Advocacy in Tennessee

Tennessee has been leading the campaign nationwide, with many successes at the state level for universal changing stations. Tennessee's legislators included $1,000,000 in its state budget to fund a grant program to pay for 200 tables in businesses and municipal facilities across the state. Additionally, they have committed to installing tables in all rest areas, welcome centers, and state parks by 2030, with the majority installed in the next 2 years. This is by far the most substantial investment in adult changing tables anywhere in the country.
