  • New Report: Survivors Seeking Asylum are Exposed to More Violence at the Border

    Unfortunately, that is not the case for survivors of gender-based violence who arrive at the southern border seeking protection here in the United States.

  • 2022 Policy Platform

    News

    April 1st, 2022

    Tahirih’s policy work is rooted in our core values and in our specific theory of change. Inspired by the Bahá’í faith and grounded in our belief in the oneness of humanity, we reach for a society that embraces our diversity and guarantees everyone’s human rights. Our mission is to advance policies and laws that enable immigrant survivors of gender-based violence to pursue legal immigration status, live in safety, and forge their own paths. Everything we do is in service of that goal.

The Tahirih Justice Center is prioritizing the following policy goals to immediately improve protections for immigrant survivors while simultaneously seeking long-term, systemic change.
