A brighter future for Iraq is possible. But we need your help to generate hope.
Last week Erik wrote, "If Iraq were only populated by car bombers, death squads and the victims of both, then there would be no hope for change. Fortunately, Iraq has many brave souls struggling to make a difference in every sector of society. The problem is not that they don’t exist, but that the media rarely reports on their efforts."
That's where EPIC comes in. Through our increasingly popular Ground Truth interviews and new media, we’re educating Americans about the realities inside Iraq and promoting workable solutions for building peace.
But without you, we cannot sustain our efforts. Please make a generous contribution right now and help us raise $15K in May.
Through the Ground Truth Project, EPIC is advancing the solution-focused perspectives of Lisa Schirch, Eric Davis and other policy experts. We are amplifying the firsthand accounts of Iraqi aid worker Khaldoon Ali, Iraq War veteran-turned-advocate Jonathan Powers and other peacebuilders working against incredible odds. We are making their voices heard in the national media. And through EPIC’s blog, we are engaging thousands of readers in thought-provoking discussion about the future of Iraq and U.S. policy.
Despite ongoing violence, Iraq has dedicated doctors, teachers, aid workers and peacebuilders who are working hard to stabilize and develop their country. Their hope for Iraq is contagious, but their efforts rarely make the front page news. Without EPIC, who will be their champion?
Please help us to be a strong advocate for Iraq’s peacebuilders. Make a generous donation right now to bring us closer to our goal of $15K by the end of May.
