Mission Statement

To bridge gaps between diaspora Oromo communities and the international community to amplify human rights violations against people and support and empower women.

Description

Global Coalition of Oromos for Human Rights and Democracy was founded at the heights of mass killings, torture, disappearance, displacement and other human rights violations of Oromo people by l Ethiopia rulers. In short time between 2015-17, millions of people were displaced, hundreds of thousands arrested, thousands were killed while the international community said nothing. Out of desperation we begin speaking up again Ethiopia government. Along with US Congress succeeded in pressuring the government to stop its mass torture, release political prisoners and open up political space.
In addition, we organize different platforms for women empowerment using Atete (traditional women divinity) and support Waqefena faith. Waqefena is traditional African faith with less then two million followers. For long time the followers of this religion have been prosecuted by the government and other dominant religion leaders.
