Please enjoy Tahirih's December newsletter!

Dear friends,

Thank you for investing in the work of the Tahirih Justice Center! I would like to invite you to read about Tahirih’s recent accomplishments in our December newsletter, an excerpt of which is included below.

The Women You've Saved

Saved video screen shotTahirih is pleased to share with you a new informational video, The Women You’ve Saved, which features Tahirih’s clients telling their own stories as well as an introduction to Tahirih’s work. We hope this short 2-minute video, which debuted as a part of the Bighearted Attorneys Campaign, will be a useful and compelling tool for our supporters to introduce Tahirih’s work to friends and relatives. We invite you to view the video online and ask that you please share it widely!

Tahirih is pleased to share with you the news that our client Daniela (not her real name) was recently granted asylum after a long, trying journey. Daniela’s success would not have been possible without a collaborative effort between attorneys in Tahirih’s Washington, DC area and Houston offices, and a team of pro bono attorneys at Mayer Brown LLP.

Daniela is from Central America, where she suffered over two decades of severe physical and sexual abuse at the hands of her boyfriend, the father of her children. She was hospitalized on three occasions from the abuse, once incapacitated for over a year. She tried multiple times to seek help, calling the police and successfully obtaining a protective order. However, the police were not able to protect her. Daniela’s boyfriend was never jailed for more than a few days at a time, and he ignored the protective order and continued his abuse.
