Coming to the Aid of the Persecuted, a Crucial Conversation

Join us for this crucial conversation presented in partnership with the Los Angeles Jewish Journal.

The Yazidi people are in the third year of a sexual and military slavery that is part of a genocide perpetrated by so-called-ISIS. Among other groups, the Israeli NGO IsraAid and the Yazidi NGO Yazda work hard to raise consciousness and provide for Yazidi rescue and relief.
