Civilians at Risk
Since the summer of 2014, the self-proclaimed Islamic State, or ISIS, has carried out a violent campaign against civilians in Ninewa province in northern Iraq, home to many of Iraq’s ethnic and religious minorities. These actions have decimated millennia-old communities and irrevocably torn the social fabric of the once-diverse region. The United States government has determined that the ongoing violence constitutes genocide. Join us for a conversation about what the genocide determination means now and what can be done for civilians in Iraq.
