How do we protect survivors of violence?

Tahirih works to dismantle the laws, practices, and attitudes that leave immigrant survivors vulnerable to abuse. We provide each survivor with the resources they need to secure personal protection and support their agency in their healing journey. By working at both the systemic and individual levels, we seek to have a truly transformative impact on our justice system. We take an interdisciplinary approach to secure justice for survivors. Through free legal and social services, policy advocacy, and community outreach and training, we protect and expand legal rights for immigrant survivors of gender-based violence seeking safety in the U.S.
