Coming together virtually to end gender-based violence.
As a national, nonprofit organization that supports immigrant survivors of violence, Tahirih Justice Center’s fundraising events are pivotal to continuing its important work with survivors of gender-based violence. With the pandemic shutting down all in-person events, Tahirih called on VISION to transform its annual Houston Gala into a virtual event that would engage virtual attendees and inspire donations towards Tahirih’s cause.
Tahirih Justice Center’s ‘Journey to Justice’ virtual event not only seeks to raise funding for its many resources for immigrant survivors of violence but also to acknowledge the strength and resiliency of its clients and all survivors as they seek to attain the most basic human rights – to live in safety and with dignity – in the face of the COVID-19 pandemic and continued attacks on asylum.
Hosted by Emmy award-winning journalist at KTRK-TV Channel 13, Miya Shay, the virtual event also featured many Tahirih advocates, including famed Actress Eva LaRue; Actor, Director, and Filmmaker, Justin Baldoni; and State House Representative and COVID-19 Pandemic Response Czar, Armando Walle, to name a few. The event also featured musical performances by Singer-Songwriter, AIJIA, and multi-platinum Singer-Songwriter, Andy Grammer.
Virtual Event Production:
VISION capitalized on our virtual event production expertise to revamp Tahirih Justice Center’s “Journey to Justice” into a virtual experience utilizing both pre-recorded and live interactive elements. Through careful coordination, the virtual event featured real-time stats on fundraising progress as well as social media callouts and donor recognition throughout the event.
Motion Graphics Content Creation:
The virtual event allowed the audience to bear witness to the long and arduous journey to justice taken by immigrant survivors of violence. VISION’s creative team brought the virtual event’s theme, ‘Journey to Justice’, to life with moving motion graphics and animations intertwined with Tahirih Justice Center’s important messaging.
Through its ‘Journey to Justice’ virtual event, Tahirih Justice Center is able to protect and elevate the voices of courageous immigrant women and girls who refuse to be victims of violence. VISION is proud to put our expertise in virtual event production to work to help Tahirih Justice Center create a world where all women and girls enjoy equality and live ON in safety and with dignity.
