About this Event:
If you are unable to attend or wish to make an advance donation, please visit enablingpeace.org/donate and simply write “Iraq Action Fund” in the comments section.
The Iraq Action Fund provides support to nonviolent civil society activists, youth organizers, and human rights defenders who are pressing for genuine reforms to Iraq’s political system. In close coordination with the Iraq Health Access Organization (IHAO), at least 20% of the fund’s grants will be dedicated to short-term immediate needs such as medical supplies to treat injured protesters and support for the volunteer medics. The remainder of the fund will go to provide technical assistance, training, advocacy, and other forms of support in close consultation with civil society organizations, human rights defenders, and key youth organizers.
