No More Tears was founded by Somy Ali, originally from Karachi, Pakistan, who grew up in a home of severe violence. Somy, her mother and younger brother moved to the U.S. from Pakistan when she was 12. At age 16, she moved to India to pursue a career in the Hindi film industry and 10 films later, returned to the United States in order to pursue a formal education. Graduating with a degree in Psychology, Somy established No More Tears, a 501 (c) 3 not-for-profit organization, in 2007, with the mission of rescuing human trafficking and domestic violence victims from their abusers.
