The Beacon Center of Tennessee empowers Tennesseans to reclaim control of their lives, so that they can freely pursue their version of the American Dream. Beacon launched a legal foundation in 2015 to represent Tennesseans at no cost when their rights have been violated by government. Among other achievements, the legal foundation’s work has led to the successful repeal of numerous unconstitutional laws, including multiple state-level occupational licensing laws, the city of Nashville’s original homesharing restrictions, and the city’s home business ban. Beacon’s legal foundation also assisted in defending the constitutionality of Tennessee’s comprehensive tort reform law before the state Supreme Court.
