About Us

Bridges to Justice is a worker and community alliance fighting to improve safety and working conditions for the men and women who build Tennessee.

Our coalition formed in the fall of 2011 as a worker and community response to a series workers deaths on Tennessee Department of Transportation bridge projects.

Our founding members, Jobs with Justice of East Tennessee, Interfaith Worker Justice of East Tennessee, Laborers’ Local 818, and Iron Workers’ Local 384, all share a common commitment to worker safety and the appropriate use of public funds. Since our founding we have grown into a network of concerned community members, workers, and faith leaders across the state.

Check out our whitepaper, Safety Before Schedule–  additionally, we have it available in Spanish:  safety before schedule Espanol.
