Join us for a house party to benefit cultural exchange and reconciliation between Iraqis and Americans. Nine physicians and one journalist from Minneapolis' Sister City of Najaf, Iraq will be our honored guests.
The physicians are being hosted by the Iraqi and American Reconciliation Project (IARP) and volunteers. They are coming to observe and learn from colleagues in Minnesota, build relationships with medical and academic organizations, and get to know Americans. They are working in Iraq to provide medical care amid ongoing occupation. Please join us!

IARP BOARD OF DIRECTORS:
Greetings! My name is Evelyn Daugherty and I am a volunteer with the Iraqi & American Reconciliation Project (IARP).
I am writing to invite you to join a group of Iraqi physicians and IARP on October 30. This is a group of doctors who have stayed in Iraq through decades of conflict to provide critical medical care to the Iraqi people.
Since 2003, at least 100,000 Iraqi civilians have died as a result of the U.S.-led war. Seventy percent of children suffer from trauma-related symptoms and there are perhaps five million orphans in Iraq-almost half of the country's children.
IARP, along with our partner the Muslim Peacemaker Teams, are facilitating their trip to Minneapolis to connect them with colleagues in the US and provide training and learning opportunities for them.
Please join us and the doctors on October 30. Your support is critical for promoting reconciliation between Iraqis and Americans and healing in Iraq.
