Nadia’s Initiative Global Advocacy

Nadia’s Initiative works with heads of government, policymakers, media, and civil society to effect change on the ground for Yazdis and other minority groups in Iraq.  
Dialogue focuses on urging leaders to recognize the importance of establishing and supporting a comprehensive peace building strategy for Sinjar – one that fosters reconciliation and promotes the redevelopment and safety of the region. Key Highlights:


Genocide Recognition. 

Nadia’s Initiative has been instrumental in getting nation states to recognize the Yazidi genocide, by meeting with world leaders and calling on them to make public “declarations”.


UN Security Council Resolution 2379.

Worked extensively to pressure the United Nations Security Council to pass Resolution 2379 which opened an investigation into the war crimes committed by Daesh against the Yazidi people.


De-mining Sinjar.

Established partnership with Mine Advisory Group (MAG) and obtained funding from France and the United States to de-mine Sinjar (on-going).


Voice for Survivors. 

Global awareness for combating war crimes and seeking justice for victims of sexual violence.
