Jannat Alghezzi (who will be with us in person!) serve's as OWFI's Media Director and coordinates between OWFI's growing number of shelters for women escaping domestic violence and ISIS. Jannat herself came up through OWFI's shelter system, which she desribes as "schools" of politicization and empowerment. Join us in affirming the importance of a focus on liberatory movements in Iraq now, in the face of a global image associated only with war and sectarianism.
