The Tennessee Coalition to End Domestic and Sexual Violence (The Coalition) joins with others across our state and the nation in expressing our outrage and sincere sorrow over the continued violence against the Black Community. We mourn the lives of those recently lost, Mr. George Floyd, Ms. Breonna Taylor, Mr. Ahmaud Arbery, Ms. Atatiana Jefferson, and Mr. Tony McDade. We acknowledge that generations of Black People, Indigenous people and communities of color have been devastated and traumatized by racism.
The Coalition advocates for all survivors of domestic and sexual violence. Recognizing that racism plays a significant role in enabling and propagating violence, we must unite together to seek justice, embrace the transformational change that is needed to dismantle all forms of oppression, and actively work to create a world where everyone is safe in their homes and communities.
How to Get Involved
Our number one priority is the safety and wellbeing of our community. In an effort to do our part to mitigate the spread of COVID-19 in the community, we will be implementing measures that we feel are necessary to protect the health and safety of our clients and staff.
Out of an abundance of caution for all Coalition clients and staff, we have instituted full-time remote work until further notice.
We will still be available via phone call at 615 386-9406 and will continue to provide financial and legal services for survivors and technical assistance for advocates and programs. We will continue to monitor the situation and ensure that survivors are able to receive services.

Nuestra primera prioridad es la seguridad y el bienestar de nuestra comunidad. Nosotros también queremos aportar a la lucha contra la rápida propagación de COVID-19 en nuestra comunidad y, por lo tanto, vamos a implementar ciertos cambios que creemos que son necesarios para proteger la salud y la seguridad de nuestros clientes y nuestros empleados.
Por razones de mayor precaución y con el fin de proteger a los clientes y empleados de la Coalición, hemos adoptado un sistema de trabajo remoto hasta nuevo aviso.
Seguiremos estando disponibles por medio de llamadas telefónicas (615-386-9406) y no habrá interrupción en los servicios legales y financieros a sobrevivientes, o la asistencia técnica para asesores y programas. Continuaremos a monitorear la situación y asegurar que sobrevivientes puedan recibir servicios por nuestra parte.
