Join us to celebrate the end of a busy and successful year and kick off the holiday season! If you wish to donate, bring cash or check to contribute to Tahirih Justice Center.please contact events@masterword.com for a link to donate securely online.

About Tahirih Justice Center:

Tahirih Justice Center is a national nonprofit that has served over 19,000 courageous women and children fleeing violence since 1997. Tahirih utilizes an efficient, effective and innovative model to provide free legal and social support services to immigrant women and children who have been victims of horrific violence such as human trafficking, rape, torture, domestic abuse, forced marriage, and female genital mutilation. Through these direct services, policy advocacy, and community training and education, Tahirih helps them access the justice they deserve, and promotes a world where women and girls enjoy equality and live in safety and in dignity. Legal representation is the single most important factor affecting the outcome of an asylum case for immigrant women and children. Without representation, odds of winning hover at 16.3%; with representation, odds increase to 45.6%. With Tahirih representation, however, odds of winning skyrocket to 99%.

In 2015 alone, Tahirih protected 972 immigrant women and girls by providing free legal representation and advice. They connect 644 women and children with vital social services in the wake of trauma including help with housing, transportation, school enrollment, safety planning, and access to mental health services. They trained 8,754 professionals in the advocacy and justice system to better respond to the unique needs of immigrant women and children who have experienced trauma.

Tahirih’s Houston office was established in 2009, and has grown to be Tahirih’s largest office. The need for Tahirih’s services is critically high both across and country and especially in Houston, given its proximity to the US border.
