The Tennessee World Affairs Council is an independent, nonpartisan, educational association that is a member of the 95+ member network of World Affairs Councils of America (WACA), grassroots groups that share our mission of informing knowledge of the world among our community members. The programs listed here are available for you. Most are free. Some Councils ask for a donation to support their work. We also appreciate your financial support, especially in these difficult times for nonprofit groups. Thank you. Enjoy the shows!
If you appreciate what we’re doing for our community please add your gift to make these programs possible. Your support is needed to offset the severe impact of the pandemic on our finances.
