In January 2016 we traveled across the region of Sinjar/Shengal, in northern Iraq, only a few months after the region had been liberated from ISIS.
The region was still a war zone, marked by destroyed cities and towns, mass graves, and solo oil rigs and fires. There were very few civilians.
On Sinjar mountain we came across camps of Yazidi survivors of ISIS genocide who had returned from IDP camps in the Kurdistan Regional Government to the mountains to take up residence in their homeland once more. These two young women were selling delicious bread by the roadside.
In our podcast, we seek to bring the struggles and the efforts of people like these young Yazidi women to the international conversation. We will be building a community of voices through interviews with guests and the support of global youth episodes reflecting the organic concerns of threatened communities around the world.
