Tahirih Justice Center
Tahirih Justice Center is a national non-profit that has served nearly 19,000 courageous individuals fleeing violence since 1997, when Layli Miller-Muro founded the center after her involvement in a case that revolutionized asylum law. Their efficient, effective, and innovative model of service is inspired by the Bahá’í Faith and strives to create a world where women and girls enjoy equality. They have served nearly 19,000 courageous women and girls fleeing gender based violence, sex trafficking, forced child marriage and genital mutilation. I’m proud to be their spokesperson!
Friends of El Faro
The Friends of El Faro charity supports the Casa Hogar Sion orphanage in Tijuana, Mexico. Kaya and I go down to visit with a bus full of friends a few times a year, and bring cleaning supplies, diapers, sports equipment, personal hygiene products, crafts and toys.
