Please join the Tahirih Justice Center for our Houston Virtual Event!

We look forward to a time when in-person celebratory events are all the rage again, but until then we are pleased to announce that Tahirih’s Houston office will be hosting a virtual event in lieu of our annual Houston Gala.

Check back for event updates that include registration details, sponsor benefits, special guests, silent auction items, and more! In the meantime, please see below for more information about our sponsors, Host Committee and opportunities to support the event and the Houston office.
