YI  Statement Regarding Recognition of Yezidi Genocide

Lincoln Yazidis praise genocide declaration-Interview by Journal Star

Recognition of Yezidi Genocide

“Both Alali and Khalaf said they plan to continue working to open doors for Yazidis wanting to leave the region and find safe places in the U.S. or Canada, and to free those still in bondage to the Islamic State.

“This lets us think about the future,” Khalaf said. “Now that it has been labeled as genocide, it’s going to open the discussion on how we can prevent future genocides from happening.”

YI Helps a Displaced Family in Desperate Need

Thanks to Supporters, $1,000 was donated to help Barakat’s Family
 
His family lives in Bersive refugee camp in Zakho, northern Iraq.The mother has lymphatic filariasis which is also known as elephantiasis. She noticed symptoms around June 2014. When they flee from their homes on August 3rd, 2014 the hardship and negligence of immediate treatment caused extra pain. She has become nearly disable with the sever pain and swelling. She has to crawl to move from place to place.
 
While she will not be able to get the shape of the leg back, the illness is curable.
 
Four of their children have  been suffering from hemophilia, but now that they have lost all their worldly possessions to ISIS they have no way of  seeking medical help. Government will not assist either because they are overwhelmed with number of people needing help. This family has been looking to outsiders for relief from the constant pain.

YI Takes Part in Cultural Proficiency Meeting at North Star High School

A member of Yezidis International was invited to speak at the teachers Cultural Proficiency Meeting at North Star High School. Half of the teachers gathered for an hour and half to  learn about Yezidis and other ethnic groups and religions that make up Middle East. A panel made up of students from different Middle Eastern countries also had the opportunity to share the challenges and obstacles they faced as English Language Learners.

Some teachers and students were in tears as they learned about the atrocities committed against the Yezidi people. It was an important gathering to shed some light on the situation that very much effected their students.

Beside covering part of history, current situation, and religion Yezidis International members also relayed information on ways teachers can support immigrant students so they can be more successful and have an easier transition.
