Please join us for our Houston Tahirih Justice Center annual event, Journey to Justice: Progress & Perseverance. 

We continue celebrating our 25th anniversary this fall with our annual Houston gala, which will be going back to an in-person event for the first time since 2019 to celebrate this monumental milestone. Since our doors opened, we have served more than 31,000 immigrant survivors of gender-based violence, working with various community partners to support immigrant survivors of gender-based violence seeking safety in the United States.  

As we come together again in person this year, join us in celebrating the progress we have made with your support and recognizing the perseverance that survivors of gender-based violence embody on their journey to justice.
