War Resisters League (map)

I will be accompanying Alsarah at this important War Resisters League Event. www.alsarah.com
Join WRL in presenting our 2016 Peace Award to Baghdad-based Jannat Alghezzi of the pathbreaking Organization of Women's Freedom in Iraq (OWFI) - at our new home in Chinatown.

Jannat Alghezzi (who will be with us in person!) serves as OWFI's Media Director and coordinates between OWFI's growing number of underground shelters for women escaping domestic violence and ISIS. Jannat herself came up through OWFI's shelter system, which she describes as "schools" of politicization and empowerment. Join us in affirming liberatory movements in Iraq now, in the face of a global image associated exclusively with war and sectarianism.
For more on OWFI's remarkable work, see: http://www.owfi.info/EN/
Since 1958, War Resisters League has honored a person or organization with its annual peace award. In 2015, Mumia Abu-Jamal was honored.
