Description

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.
