Why a “Year In Review”? Three reasons: to show potential recruits and the curious exactly what we do; to celebrate the hard work and accomplishments of our teammates; to inspire anyone who’s wanting to help their communities with very little or no money, and with or without a team.

In 2016, members of the Tennessee-Memphis Initiative got CPI (Crisis Prevention Institute) certified and renewed their CPR/AED certification.

TMI also conducted patrols, put in volunteer hours, and had a successful sock drive towards the end of the year.

Members also became more involved in local social justice organizations.
