Nowmee joined Tahirih’s Atlanta office in 2021. As a Staff Attorney, Nowmee is represents immigrants who have faced gender based violence in Immigration Court and U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS).
Prior to joining Tahirih, Nowmee served as a legal intern at Brooklyn Defenders and TakeRoot Justice in New York City. Before law school, Nowmee was a paralegal at a civil rights law firm. Nowmee grew up in Dhaka, Bangladesh and immigrated to the U.S. when she was 16.
I am inspired by Tahirih’s mission of providing wholistic, client-centered, and trauma-informed services to courageous immigrants who have faced gender based violence. Our clients are heroes and I am honored to work with them.
