Mission Statement

To be a force for human rights, women's rights, and indigenous people's rights by empowering individuals and communities across the globe.

Description

We are a grassroots organization that works on human rights issues in Ethiopia. Our organization, the Oromo Legacy Leadership and Advocacy Association (OLLAA), which is formerly known as the Coalition of Oromo Advocate for Human Rights and Democracy (COHRD) was born during the most critical time when thousands of Oromo and other Ethiopian youth were being gunned down by the former Ethiopian regime. The collective effort enabled a strong push for the US Congress to demand change in Ethiopia. In fact, for the first time, we worked with over 114 US members of Congress to pass House Resolution 128 in a unanimous vote.


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.
