I petitioned the UK government to help Yazidi women and girls captured by ISIS. Here’s what happened.

11 Nov 2015, 2:40pm - 3:15pm

17-year-old Rozin Khalil moved to the UK when it became too dangerous to stay in Iraq. She’s part of the country’s small Yazidi community, among the most persecuted minority groups in the region.

Now living in Coventry, Rozin felt compelled to act in support of the thousands of Yazidi women and girls who have been captured and abused by ISIS. Her petition to rally the UK government in response to the crisis has attracted nearly 200,000 signatures and counting.

Rozin’s talk recounts this unfolding story, describing how her activism is raising awareness within government and providing solidarity and support for Yazidi women and girls.

Rozin’s talk is generously supported by PET-Xi , one of the largest training providers in the UK.
