BENEFITING: UNCHAINED AT LAST

EVENT: The San Francisco Marathon 2017

EVENT DATE: Jul 23, 2017

Sara Tasneem

THE STORY:

I am running the SF marathon to raise money and awareness about the important issue of child marriage!

There are only a handful of organizations out there who are fighting to change laws and help victims. That is why their work is so critical. Tahirih Justice Center http://www.tahirih.org/  and Unchained At Last http://www.unchainedatlast.org/  are among those organizations. I urge you to please check out their sites and learn more about this issue.

According to Unchained At Last, "Child marriage is legal in the U.S., and nearly a quarter-million children as young as 12 married in the U.S. between 2000 and 2010. Unchained started and now leads the growing national movement to end child marriage in America."

Please also visit TAHIRIH JUSTICE CENTER to support their advocacy, they work to help victims of child and forced marriage survivors and advocate for change to the laws that allow it. http://www.tahirih.org/give/
