Tennessee Immigrant & Refugee Rights Coalition is a coalition of immigrants, refugees, and allies working to lift up fundamental American freedoms and human rights and build a strong, welcoming, and inclusive Tennessee. Since founding in 2003, TIRRC has grown from an informal network of community leaders into one of the most diverse and effective coalitions of its kind, a model for immigrant rights organizations throughout the U.S. The funds requested in the application will support professional development for Co-Executive Director Stephanie Teatro, including coaching and Spanish classes, and funding for staff support and incentives during Stephanie’s absence.
