A campaign for Partners for Peace

Posted on November 28, 2016 by

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.

IARP’s Partner for Peace team provides a dependable, ongoing source of funding that fuels our unique work of reconciliation. You can become a Partner for Peace by clicking on any ongoing payment option (monthly or weekly) after choosing your desired amount on our GiveMn page or on our secure donation page here.

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

“Being Sustaining Donors to IARP is one way to say ‘we are in this relationship for the long run’. We are tired of our tax dollars going for war and destruction; we want our money and resources to be invested in people working for peace and reconciliation.” – Steve and Christine Clemens, IARP Partner for Peace Team Members
