21st Century Genocide: The Yezidis of Iraq
Join the SSW's Center on Violence Against Women and Children's Certificate Program for a talk with Pari Ibrahim, founder and executive director of the Free Yezidi Foundation.
Pari Ibrahim, left Kurdistan with her family when she was three years old, fleeing attacks by the Saddam Hussein regime. She had lived outside the city of Duhok in the town of Khanke. After the ISIS attacks on Sinjar and the Yezidi population in August 2014, Ms. Ibrahim founded the Free Yezidi Foundation (FYF) to help Yezidi civilians in need and raise awareness of the situation. On behalf of the Foundation, she has spoken at the United Nations Security Council, the British Parliament, and a number of prominent universities and think tanks in the United States and elsewhere. Pari has also been active in organizing protests and speaking with the media, including Al-Monitor, the BBC, and the Dutch news show Brandpunt.
