Tahirih Justice Center (Baltimore Office)
The Tahirih Justice Center works primarily to protect immigrant women and girls seeking justice in the United States from gender-based violence. Tahirih's innovative and comprehensive approach leverages pro bono resources to provide a combination of legal services, advocacy, and public education programs. Through this coordinated effort, Tahirih seeks to ensure the protection and safety of our clients, as well as their long-term well-being by raising their voices in the public policy arena, informing the public of the unique challenges immigrant survivors of violence face, and, ultimately, creating lasting legal and social change. We provide clients with pro bono holistic legal social services.
