Community Outreach

We enforce all laws regardless of the religion or ethnicity of the victims. To instill a sense of trust in our justice system, our office, along with the FBI, has an Arab American and Muslim Outreach Program as well as outreach efforts to other minority groups throughout the District.

The United States Attorney’s Office for the Eastern District of Tennessee is committed to ensuring the civil rights of all citizens are upheld. Based upon the recent United States Supreme Court ruling in Obergefell v. Hodges, marriage equality is now recognized Tennessee. Any persons who believe their civil rights may have been infringed should contact the FBI at (865)544-0751.

If you would like to request someone from the United States Attorney's Office to speak to your organization about the overall mission and functions of the United States Attorney's Office or a specific program or initiative, please contact our Knoxville Headquarters office by phone at 865-545-4167 or send an e-mail to

More information coming soon on community outreach efforts within the Eastern District of Tennessee.
