The Tahirih Justice Center works to protect immigrant women and girls seeking justice in the United States from gender-based violence. Leveraging both in-house and pro bono attorneys, we empower our clients to achieve justice and equality through holistic direct legal services and national public policy advocacy.
Tahirih Justice Center is a national, non-profit organization that protects courageous immigrant women and girls who refuse to be victims of violence by elevating their voices in communities, courts, and Congress.
Since 1997, Tahirih has assisted nearly 17,000 women and children seeking protection from gender-based human rights abuses such as rape, female genital mutilation, domestic violence, human trafficking, "honor" crimes, and forced marriage. Our award-winning, holistic model for protection combines free legal services and social services case management with bridge-building public policy advocacy, education, and outreach.
With offices in Houston, Baltimore, and Greater DC, Tahirih’s programs efficiently and effectively leverage donated professional services from a vast network of attorneys, medical professionals, and community volunteers.
Inspired by principles of the Bahá’í Faith, Tahirih is committed to promoting the equality of women and men, and works to create a world where women and girls can live in safety and with dignity.
