Goal Progress


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.

Josie and I are running a 5K to support Tahirih Justice Center!!  Tahirih advocates alongside survivors of gender-based violence, including child abuse, domestic violence, and trafficking.   I've been lucky to work with Tahirih over the years, supporting its immigration work and benefiting from their expert mentorship and their holistic approach to serving clients.   This work means a lot to me and this year I might even beat Josie (but I doubt it).  Thank you for your support!
