NOT ALL HEROES WEAR CAPES

Every year, the Tennessee Justice Center recognizes the greatest champions of healthy families and whole communities in our state. This year we are continuing in the tradition and honoring five heroes who have spent their lives advocating for mothers and their children. These justice warriors embody a commitment to the same mission that TJC has spent 24 years believing: that all Tennesseans have value and dignity and that our laws, policies, and programs should be protected and improved to reflect these shared beliefs.

Beginning April 27, we will be sharing the stories of our 2020 honorees and recognizing their induction into our Hall of Fame. Then, on May 1 at noon CST, make your favorite lunchtime meal and join us online for a live virtual gathering, which will allow us to raise the critical funds needed to continue and expand our work for families from Memphis to Mountain City. During this historically scary and chaotic time, our goal for the week is to inspire hope and light for our community. Join us in celebrating these righteous beacons of hope and change, all while helping us in achieving our ultimate goal of dignity and opportunity for all.

Register via Zoom for the May 1 event, or stream live on Facebook.
