Tahirih Justice Center

The Tahirih Justice Center is a nonprofit organization that serves women, girls, and other immigrant survivors fleeing gender-based violence. Our interdisciplinary, trauma-informed model of service combines free legal services and social services case management with bridge-building policy advocacy and research-based training and education. Our programs efficiently and effectively leverage donated professional services from a vast network of attorneys, medical professionals, and other experts to serve as many immigrant survivors as possible. By amplifying the experiences of survivors in communities, courts, and Congress, Tahirih’s mission is to create a world in which all people share equal rights and live in safety and with dignity

Effective - We maintain a 96% litigation success rate despite the complex nature of the cases we accept. 

Efficient - We leverage the pro bono services of 2,800 volunteers, multiplying the impact of every dollar donated. 

Mission-driven - 87% of our resources go directly to program services for immigrant survivors fleeing violence.

Immigrant women and girls in the US are twice as likely to experience domestic violence than the general population, and they are less likely to leave the abusive situation due to fear of immigration consequences. Tahirih Justice Center is an organization that serves this extremely vulnerable group and brings them justice and a better future. Please support me in the worthy cause.
