Share your story by contacting Tennessee Justice Center
A large part of TJC’s success has come from our ability to help create systemic change, but that change doesn’t come unless we can show that the systems are broken and not working for people. One of our most powerful tools to do that is sharing real people’s stories- people like you. If TennCare denied a service you need or if health reform is helping you get what you want, let us know.  If you’d like to share your story with TJC, please contact us.
