  • Al Jazeera America published a four-part series highlighting forced marriage in the United States and featured Tahirih’s Forced Marriage Initiative.
  • The Washington Post drew attention to the plight of immigrant women who experience roadblocks to protection from domestic violence after a Congressional briefing Tahirih co-convened in November.
  • Baltimore's WBAL-TV 11 invited Tahirih Supervising Attorney Morgan Weibel to discuss the reality of human trafficking in Baltimore on 11 TV-Hill.

The Tahirih Justice Center is a national, non-profit organization that protects courageous immigrant women and girls who refuse to be victims of violence. We elevate their voices in communities, courts, and Congress to create a world where women and girls enjoy equality and live in safety and with dignity.
