We are inviting for you to become a Partner for Peace and join our team of sustaining donors who generously give each month to IARP.
Becoming a Partner for Peace means you are making a commitment to partner with Iraqis and Americans working together to build a future free of hate, bigotry, and fear. Your interest in and support of our critical work means a great deal to all of us at IARP. Thank you.
Why become a Partner for Peace today?
Reason #1: We provide an artistic platform to Twin Cities-based Iraqis to share their stories. Safe spaces like these are needed now more than ever. Watch the Iraqi Voices films here: www.iraqiartproject.org/iraqi-voices/
Reason #2: We facilitate language, personal and professional exchanges in both Minnesota and Iraq.
Reason #3: We directly support humanitarian efforts on the ground in Iraq. In 2016, we partnered with the Critical Needs Support Foundation to distribute hygiene kits and supplies to Iraqis living in IDP camps. Learn more here: www.givemn.org/project/Water-For-Peace
Reason #4: We expose and share the diverse art and culture of Iraq and Iraqis in order to counter negative stereotypes. Learn more here: www.iraqiartproject.org/
“As Iraqi refugees, we have been through so much and film is a great outlet for us to express ourselves and gives us a cultural platform on which to reach a mainstream American audience. Through art, we can break down stereotypes and directly tell other Americans who we are and why we as new Americans are here.” – Jamal, Iraqi Voices participant
“As an Iraq War veteran and member of Iraq Veterans Against the War I am honored to be able to contribute to the work of IARP… I know I am responsible for contributing to the loss of so much for so many and the least I can do is find ways to take responsibility, demand the US pays reparations, and be grateful for every opportunity to reconcile this tragedy.” – Aaron Hughes, IARP Partner for Peace Team Member
