Since the Yazidi Genocide in 2014, HÁWAR.help has been advocating for the rights of people who are persecuted, discriminated, or marginalized. Our awareness-raising work is aimed at actors and decision-makers in politics, business and academia, as well as broader sections of European and global society. We organize events such as the HÁWAR.help Human Rights Award 2017, give guest lectures on European and international stages, participate in conferences such as at the United Nations, as well as consulting politicians and decision-makers on women’s empowerment issues. In doing so, we develop collaborative solutions to promoting more open societies characterized by tolerance, empathy and solidarity. We understand the power of storytelling and visibility and are not afraid to present the issues we care about in a media-effective way.
