Founded in 1996, TJC is a private, non-profit public interest law firm that represents low-income families throughout Tennessee. Our mission is to advocate on behalf of poor Tennesseans:
• In areas of public policy having the greatest impact on their health and welfare;
• By means which afford clients opportunities to make their own voices heard; and
• In ways which emphasize collaborations across lines of class, race, and age. Our clients inspire and drive the work we do. TJC also supports the work of others, beyond state boundaries, that are engaged in similar advocacy efforts on behalf of the poor.
