About Oromo Legacy Leadership and Advocacy Association
800 W Broad St 100 #263, Falls Church, VA 22040, US
To be a force for human rights, women’s rights, and indigenous rights by empowering Oromo communities and collaborating across the globe through Advocacy and Development.
Who we are
OLLAA began in 2017 as the Coalition of Oromos for Human Rights and Democracy (COHRD). CORHD was an organization established to give voice to Oromo youth who were being killed, harassed, or imprisoned for the "crime" of protesting. In 2020, COHRD became OLLAA, a more comprehensive organization seeking to empower Oromos, neighbors & organizations to connect and thrive; not just merely exist or survive. OLLAA also means neighbors in Afaan Oromo.
What we do
OLLAA is a nonprofit community-based organization that seeks to serve the socio-cultural needs of the Oromo people around the world. We are built on the following principle and goals: advocacy and diplomacy- to amplify human rights violations and encourage democratization; Youth leadership and Education-to connect generations; and women empowerment and cultural renaissance.
This is a Virtual Opportunity with no fixed address.
