Sara Amin joined Tahirih in 2016. As Marketing Manager, Sara leads the development and execution of an organization-wide marketing plan that drives the engagement of priority audiences through targeted, multi-channel communications about Tahirih’s mission, progress, and opportunities for continued impact. Prior to joining Tahirih, Sara served as an AmeriCorps VISTA with the Barbara Bush Houston Literacy Foundation in Texas and as Senior Marketing Associate with The Associated: Jewish Community Federation of Baltimore.
Sara’s appreciation for cultural differences stems from her family’s time spent abroad, starting with her first trip to Egypt at the age of 1. Since then she has visited Canada, Cyprus, France, Israel, India, England, Spain and Holland. Egypt holds a special place in Sara’s heart because the entirety of her father’s side of the family resides in Cairo or Alexandria.
“The truth is – I am one of the lucky ones. I have the privilege of using my voice on behalf of those who have been silenced … those who never knew their own voice … those who so desperately want to shout their dreams! I believe if we have the power to create lasting change, we should use every ounce of strength to stand up for what is right, what is just. The Tahirih Justice Center is an inspiration to women everywhere – it says you can change your stars, you can aspire to be whomever and whatever you so desire.”
