NOT ALL HEROES WEAR CAPES
Twenty-five years ago, Congress laid siege to the American ideal of equal justice under law by severely restricting the activities and funding of Legal Services programs across the country. Out of response to those restrictions, the Tennessee Justice Center was born. Community and bar leaders from across the state and different political persuasions came together to make sure the legal needs of vulnerable Tennesseans would still be met.
Since our founding, TJC has individually represented nearly 15,000 children and adults. We have worked tirelessly with those clients and other allies to advocate for policy reforms that benefit low-income Tennesseans statewide. We have enabled our donors’ investment to generate billions of dollars of benefits for millions of Tennessee families in need.
Every year, the Tennessee Justice Center takes the time to recognize the greatest champions of whole communities in our state as members of our Hall of Fame. These fearless fighters embody a commitment to the same mission that TJC has believed since 1996: that all our neighbors deserve the opportunity to thrive and that our laws, policies, and programs should be protected and improved to reflect these shared beliefs.
On October 23, 2021, TJC will celebrate our 25-year anniversary by honoring visionary leaders who have seen us through these years and remain some of the greatest champions of health equity and access in our state: Marvin Berry, Jr.; Judge Richard Dinkins; Frank and Amy Garrison; and Dr. Robert Miller. 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.
