Location: The Garden of Yabo Lin and May Chen, 735 Greenview Pl, Los Altos, CA 94024
It has been 25 years since our doors opened at the Tahirih Justice Center.
We celebrate having served more than 31,000 immigrant survivors of gender-based violence. Every day, we remove barriers to safety for people facing violence. Whether helping a survivor obtain immigration status or advocating for fair treatment from a government agency or raising the age of marriage in yet another state, we dedicate ourselves to stopping abuse, exploitation, and violence.
This event will focus on the complex immigration issues that survivors of gender-based violence face today, our celebration of the big and small victories in our work, and what we hope to achieve by walking alongside our resilient clients on their journey to justice.
Please join us for this mission-driven morning tea in the garden of Tahirih Board Member Yabo Lin, to raise critical funds for the Tahirih San Francisco Bay Area office. Tea and coffee will be served. Musical performance by Millie Lin (TBD)
*Due to the serious nature of the conversation young adults who are interested in the mission of Tahirih are welcome to attend, but the discussion may not be advisable for small children.
Morgan Weibel, Executive Director San Francisco Bay Area
The Tahirih Justice Center is an award-winning charity that offers hope and a path to safety for immigrant survivors of gender-based violence by advancing their cases for asylum, humanitarian visas, and other lawful protections while simultaneously providing them with immediate access to healthcare, counseling, financial assistance, childcare, and other social services. We uplift the voices of immigrant survivors in the media and with lawmakers toward long-term change in our broken immigration system. Ultimately, we work toward people of all genders and all nationalities being able to live in the U.S. in safety and as equal participants in our society.
We strongly encourage all attendees to self-test before arrival. This event will take place outdoors.
