Candlelight Vigil for Refugees

Candlelight vigil was held in downtown Lincoln in support of refugees. The event coincided with the one in Omaha Nebraska, USA Hundreds of Nebraskans stood together and let it be known that Nebraska is welcoming of people from all nations and backgrounds. People of many faiths including Yezidis from Yezidis International were present and spoke. Refugees strengthen this country . it is a country made by refugees and should be for the refugees. However, priority for resettlement should be given to those who are most vulnerable. USA should not decide based on religion or ethnicity when resettling but it should prioritize. Many groups such as Assyrians and Yezidis are suffering from ethnic and religious purification now and long before ISIS came and might be long after ISIS has been wiped out. Yezidis International members spoke to the hundreds of people who had gathered and reminded them about the Yezidis who the main target of ISIS

 Yezidis International Speak at UNL

YI members were invited again to speak at UNL , on Tuesday November 3rd where more than 100 students were present.

The plight of the Yezidi people along with information on religion and history were discussed. The students were encouraged to get involved.

When one of the students asked what can USA do,  the answer was the list is endless and then reminded them that they can make a difference: “I was at a Huskers’ game last year and kept thinking what a difference could be made if these group of young scholars decided to care, what would happen? I thought about the 90,000 people in the stadium. I thought about 20 friends at the game bringing attention to the cause in their own way if they decide to care.”
