The Kurds are among the most marginalized yet powerful indigenous groups struggling for empowerment and survival in the new global order. This event brings together four speakers who are Kurds and friends of Kurds, offering interventions to impact our knowledge towards social change,
human rights, and the dream of ethical states. This event will offer the public a chance to hear from and ask questions of Kurds and their allies whose lives are more directly affected by current events concerning the Iraqi state. Please join us for LUNCH and an afternoon of talks with question and answers following.
