Mission Statement

Tennessee Immigrant and Refugee Rights Coalition (TIRRC) is a statewide, immigrant and refugee-led collaboration whose mission is to empower immigrants and refugees throughout Tennessee to develop a unified voice, defend their rights, and create an atmosphere in which they are viewed as positive contributors to the state.

Description

Over the past 15 years, Tennessee has become a remarkably diverse state. Between 1990-2005, Tennessee experienced the fourth fastest rate of immigrant growth of any state in the country. This rapid demographic shift has resulted in substantial challenges and remarkable opportunities for both the arriving immigrant community, and their receiving communities. TIRRC is helping Tennessee address the challenges associated its growing diversity, and capitalize on the opportunities. TIRRC accomplishes this by utilizing the following four key strategies:

  • Building a Statewide Voice for Immigrants and Refugees in Tennessee
  • Empowering Immigrants and Refugees to be Active Community Participants
  • Actively Promoting Diversity Through Public Awareness
  • Defense of Civil Rights/Civil Liberties
