TOMORROW IN NYC: Eve will introduce Yanar Mohammed at "Iraq Now: Reparations, the Right to Heal, and the Question of International Solidarity"

Join us for an evening with Yanar Mohammed of the Organization of Women's Freedom in Iraq and a longtime V-Day partner, as well as Iraq Veterans Against the War's Director of Organizing, Maggie Martin, who will have jointly launched an initiative calling for reparations for the Iraqi people as well as veterans' right to heal on March 19th, 10 years to the day from the start of the U.S. invasion. The evening will also explore conditions and organizing happening in Iraq now, veteran-led organizing looking forward, as well as how that all relates to local struggles for resources and against racism. To that end, Nisrin Elamin of the Girfina youth movement and past co-coordinator of the Support Darfur network will be offering her perspective on international solidarity. Finally, Senior Staff Attorney at the Center for Constitutional Rights, Pam Spees, will be speaking about CCR's important role in this initiative. Playwright and V-Day founder Eve Ensler will introduce Yanar Mohammed while Ali Issa, national field organizer with War Resisters League will be moderating.
