Karla Perez joined Tahirih in 2018. As an Equal Justice Works Fellow Sponsored by Greenberg Traurig, LLP and The Texas Access to Justice Foundation, Karla represents immigrant women and girls who are survivors of gender-based violence in underserved communities surrounding the greater Houston region. Prior to joining Tahirih, Karla completed internships with the Immigration and Citizenship Program at Baker Ripley, Tahirih Justice Center, and the Mexican American Legal Defense and Educational Fund.
I am inspired by Tahirih’s work to provide holistic legal services to immigrant women and girls amidst constant changes in local and national policy for the immigrant community. As an immigrant myself, I am incredibly proud to serve our courageous and resilient clients.
