About the Training Event
The Tennessee Faith and Justice Alliance ("TFJA"), in conjunction with volunteer lawyers from the Knoxville Bar
Association and Legal Aid of East Tennessee, will provide training to identify the need for legal assistance,
including learning how to spot legal problems that affect the lives of their congregants and information on
existing legal and social services resources in East Tennessee. This event is open to clergy and interested laity
of all religious groups in the Knoxville area. The training will be the first TFJA event held in Knoxville.
About the Tennessee Faith and Justice Alliance
TFJA is a project of the Tennessee Supreme Court's Access to Justice Commission. It is an alliance of faithbased groups in Tennessee who commit to providing legal resources to their congregations and communities.
TFJA was created to align needs seen at the local house of worship level with possible legal resources that are
nearby, perhaps even within the same congregation. The notion is to connect with people in need in a place
they already go to seek help with a problem. That place is quite often their place of worship. Projects range
from traditional free legal clinics, to community education projects, to networks of attorneys volunteering to
meet the legal needs of local congregations.
