Mrs. Dunn, who is a member of Holy Ghost Parish in Knoxville, succeeds Brian Harris, who resigned Dec. 31.
Mrs. Dunn has been involved with Tennessee Right to Life in various capacities for many years and currently serves as the executive director of TRL’s Knox County chapter. She also has served as vice president of Tennessee Right to Life until her recent election as president.
“Stacy’s 20 plus years of leadership in building a culture of life in Tennessee and her experience in directing the most active county chapter in the state will be invaluable as she steps into this important role as president of Tennessee Right to Life,” said Lorene Steffes, a Tennessee Right to Life board member.
Mrs. Dunn is married to former state Rep. Bill Dunn, who now serves as a special adviser to Gov. Bill Lee on education.
“I am grateful to be able to serve as president to this organization that has a long history of protecting unborn children and their mothers. My goal for Tennessee Right to Life is to continue to educate our fellow Tennesseans about the beauty of life in all its ages, stages, and conditions, and to work for legislation that will protect the most vulnerable among us,” said Mrs. Dunn, who will continue to serve as executive director of TRL’s Knox County chapter.
Tennessee Right to Life is a Nashville-based statewide organization formed in the mid-1970s in response to the Roe v. Wade Supreme Court decision that legalized abortion in every state.
The organization’s focus is on public education about the sanctity of life and legislation that promotes the right to life.
Pro-life volunteers are a hallmark of Tennessee Right to Life, which sponsors events around the state, including Knoxville, Chattanooga, Sevier County, and Greene County.
