At UN WOMEN
August 3rd marks the fourth anniversary of ISIS’s attack on the Yezidi community in Sinjar, the beginning of their genocidal campaign against the Yezidi people. Four years on, the genocide is ongoing and Yezidis are still waiting for any measure of justice or accountability.
On Wednesday, August 1st, join the Free Yezidi Foundation, the Global Justice Center, UN Women & the Office of the Special Representative of the Secretary General on Sexual Violence in Conflict as we discuss how to ensure justice and accountability for the genocide and make sure that women are at the center of conflict resolution.
