How you can help

The Alliance for Kurdish Rights is a joint campaign by Arabs and Kurds. Our grassroots approach doesn’t just illuminate Kurdish human rights abuses, but invites everyone to participate in the struggle themselves. Here’s how you can help.

Speak Out

Social networking can turn into a global network for change. Post important stories about Kurds on your Facebook or Twitter, specifically reaching out to people who can pass the message along to a wide audience.  On Twitter, use the hashtag #kurdishrights to tap into a whole group of people participating in the conversation about abuses against Kurdish rights.

Keep up to date on the latest news and be sure to share it. Watch for news coming out of Iran, Turkey, Iraq and Syria. The media will take notice if it feels like we are taking notice.

Follow us on twitter, @KurdishRights, and retweet anything you’d like to share with your followers.

Add our banner to your site or blog to help spread awareness about recent Kurdish human rights abuses.

Reach Out

Most human rights abuses against Kurds happen in Turkey, Iran, or Syria. When a story breaks out, write a letter directly to the Turkish, Iranian, or Syrian embassy closest to you. Keep an eye out for our “Call to Action” campaigns.

Contact the Iranian or Turkish regimes directly to express your outrage and concern.
