Youth for New World Cooperation Circle (CC) enhances the peaceful coexistence among followers of different religions and ethnic groups in Iraq, particularly in the Kurdistan region in North Iraq. CC members build bridges and trust between followers of different religions and to promote inclusion to combat religiously-motivated violence and protect human rights. This group consists of diverse members coming from different religious, cultural and ethnic backgrounds in Kurdistan and Iraq. Members enjoy many years of experience in peace-building and human rights. They are part of the "We Are All Citizens" initiative, Future Conferences (18 conferences held in 18 Iraqi provinces), the No for Terrorism Marathon (in Basra 2012), and many other peace-building and human rights conferences, as well as several awareness campaigns that promote coexistence and minorities' rights, and a number of activities that support the displaced people in Iraq.
