2023 Hall of Fame Gala Highlights

TJC celebrated our Annual Hall of Fame Gala at City Winery by honoring visionary leaders who have seen the organization through many years, in particular the past few years of our Forever Home, and remain some of the greatest champions of health equity and access in our state. 


Hundreds of friends and leaders from all over the state of Tennessee came and tuned in on October 26th, 2023, to support the mission of the Tennessee Justice Center and to celebrate our Honorees, Deborah Farringer, Nate Gilmer, Charles Key, and Monica Mackie. 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. 


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. 


Thanks to generous event sponsors, ticket holders, and donors, TJC netted $100,000 to support our life-changing work for justice! 


Every year, the Tennessee Justice Center, along with our generous Host Committee, takes the time to recognize the greatest champions of whole communities in our state as members of its Hall of Fame. Thank you to our wonderful sponsors for generously contributing to the honoring of these individuals. 


And the gifts are still coming! If you haven’t had the chance to give, you can still donate here!
