The Inclusivity Committee increases the capacity and effectiveness of culturally specific, accessible, and trauma informed services for underserved populations in the state of Tennessee.
The Inclusivity Committee is an active group serving underserved populations across the state of Tennessee. Comprising of members from East, Middle, and West Tennessee who serve marginalized groups of people–such as elderly victims, LGBTQ+ victims, immigrant and refugee victims, Black American victims, and victims living with disabilities (as well as many others)–the Committee holds monthly Lunch&Learns focused on ways to go above diversity and actively pursue inclusion. We are developing trainings and outreach materials that are more inclusive and accessible to marginalized victims. If you have a specific need, please let us know. To get in touch with the Committee or for more questions, please email Chair of the Committee, Sielo Coleman at firstname.lastname@example.org.
