Since 1997, Tahirih has served at the forefront of the fight to end violence against women and girls and has pioneered efforts in the United States to protect the most vulnerable members of our society.
We amplify our lifesaving impact by partnering with a robust network of nearly 2,000 pro bono attorneys from 300+ top-ranked law firms and corporations, as well as pro bono medical professionals and service providers, who donate their time to help immigrant women and girls access justice and rebuild their lives.
This enables us to turn every $1 donated into $4 of impact for courageous immigrant women and girls.
Since 1997, we have helped nearly 19,000 individuals access the legal protections they are entitled to under existing U.S. law.
In 2015 alone, we:
- Provided free legal services to 972 immigrant women and girls and 1,038 of their family members—clearing obstacles to safety, dignity, and freedom for 2,010 individuals.
- Conducted 187 trainings and events that reached 8,754 community members and frontline professionals — including attorneys, judges, and doctors.
- Connected 644 women and their children to food, clothing, shelter, and other social services that were vital to rebuilding their lives in the wake of trauma.
- Advanced and defended the rights of millions of immigrant women and girls in the United States through policy advocacy and outreach.
