On Friday, December 1st, the Assyrian Democratic Movement’s Illinois Sector hosted a roundtable discussion amongst young adult Assyrian activists entitled “Diaspora’s Role in the Assyrian National Struggle”.
Four main points were covered in the discussion:
* Policy: Iraq & United States of America
Erasing Assyrians: How the KRG Abuses Human Rights, Undermines Democracy, and Conquers Minority Homelands
* Social Media: Leveraging our presence to make a difference
* Mobilization: Taking action locally, nationally, and internationally on a united front
The discussion was led by Illinois Sector Director, Alexander David, along with contributions from a variety of activists that elaborated on the topics and brainstormed advancement suggestions.
This was the second roundtable event hosted by our Sector in recent months and we hope to continue these discussions with local members of our community interested in our national cause.
