Tahirih Justice Center ‘Journey to Justice’ Gala

Coming together to end gender-based violence.

Since 1997, the Tahirih Justice Center has worked to dismantle the laws, practices, and attitudes that leave immigrant survivors vulnerable to abuse. Through free legal and social services, policy advocacy, and community outreach and training, the Tahirih Justice Center protects and expands legal rights for immigrant survivors of gender-based violence seeking safety and justice in the United States.

As a national, nonprofit organization, Tahirih Justice Center’s fundraising events are pivotal to continuing its important work with survivors of gender-based violence. During their annual ‘Journey to Justice’ Gala, Tahirih raises the necessary funding for its many resources for immigrant survivors of violence while coming together to honor the resiliency of its clients and all survivors as they seek to attain the most basic human rights – to live in safety and with dignity. Tahirih Justice Center’s 2022 Gala, ‘Journey to Justice: Progress & Perseverance’, also serves as a celebration of the 25 years of service and impact that Tahirih supporters, partners and communities have had on immigrant survivors fleeing gender-based violence. For this monumental milestone event, Tahirih Justice Center called on VISION to create event content featuring breathtaking animations, motion graphics and videos that would engage their Gala audience and inspire donations towards Tahirih’s cause.

  • Motion Graphics Content Creation:

    The 25th Anniversary Gala’s theme, created by featured artist Melanie Royster, was brought to life by VISION’s creative team with moving motion graphics and video animation intertwined with Tahirih Justice Center’s important messaging.

  • Video Production:

    To commemorate their 25th anniversary, Tahirih Justice Center engaged VISION to create a special video to debut at the Gala that looked back at Tahirih’s 25 year history. As part of Tahirih’s story, the video featured animations depicting Fauziya Kassindja’s journey to justice and how her 1996 ground-breaking case set the wheels in motion for 25 years of progress and perseverance in support of gender-based asylum.

  • Digital Experience Production:

    When the pandemic shut down all in-person events, Tahirih called on VISION’s production expertise to revamp its annual Houston Gala into a global digital experience utilizing both pre-recorded and live interactive elements that would engage viewers and inspire donations towards Tahirih’s cause.

    Through careful international coordination of content, the digital experience featured breathtaking animations and motion graphics, cameos from celebrities around the world, real-time stats on fundraising progress as well as social media callouts and donor recognition throughout the event.

Through its ‘Journey to Justice’ Gala, Tahirih Justice Center is able to protect and elevate the voices of courageous immigrant survivors who refuse to be victims of violence. VISION is proud to put our expertise in video production, animation and motion graphics to work helping Tahirih Justice Center create a world where all people live ON in safety with dignity and equality.
