Join us for a conversation with a rising voice for environmental justice, Tennessee House Representative Justin J. Pearson, who was honored by the Sierra Club in 2023.

On March 27, 2023, six people were gunned down in a mass shooting at The Covenant School in Nashville. The horrific event led Tennessee House Representative Justin J. Pearson and two colleagues to protest for common sense gun legislation on the Tennessee House floor. House Republicans retaliated by expelling Representative Pearson and his colleague Justin Jones. Pearson ran and won back his seat with 94 percent of the vote.Pearson became a national voice for common sense gun regulation.

Tennessee State Rep. Pearson is also a strong advocate for climate and environmental justice, having worked to defeat a multi-billion dollar crude oil pipeline that could have poisoned Memphis drinking water and taken land from South Memphis residents. The Sierra Club recognized him as the 2023 National Changemaker of the Year.
