Gathering to connect faith groups, legal help

Print | Front Page | Email this story

NASHVILLE (AP) - The Tennessee Supreme Court's Access to Justice Commission is inviting faith-based organizations and pro bono lawyers to a statewide gathering to discuss helping low-income Tennesseans with civil legal problems.

The Tennessee Faith and Justice Alliance recognizes that many people in need seek help from their religious leaders. Its faith-based initiative works through places of worship to connect those in need to attorneys willing to help, sometimes within the same congregations. It also provides an opportunity for attorneys to serve their churches, synagogues, mosques or temples.

The Faith-Based Initiatives Summit takes place April 7 at the Ezell Center at Lipscomb University in Nashville.

Religious leaders are encouraged to attend and invite members of their faith communities who are interested in finding ways to help. More information is at www.JusticeForAllTN.com.
