Please join us for a lunch talk with Dr. Nagham Nawzat Hasan. Nagham Nawzat Hasan, MD is a Yazidi activist and medical doctor in Iraq who has focused her career on promoting gender equality, combatting sexual and gender-based violence, and caring for survivors. After ISIS overran the Iraqi district of Sinjar and the surrounding Yazidi villages in 2014, kidnapping thousands of women and girls and holding them as sex slaves, Dr. Hasan dedicated her life to helping survivors freed from captivity and sexual slavery and speaking out on their behalf. In 2016, she received the US State Department’s International Women of Courage Award and the SOLIDAR Silver Rose Award in the European Parliament.

 

Lunch will be served!
