Solidarity from Friends Beyond the Mountains
The Coordination Hub is a place for those who support the Kurdish people, both groups of Kurds and groups in solidarity, to communicate and coordinate their efforts in North America. On this page, individuals can find groups to join, find events in North America, or add their group or event. Organizations can join The Coordination Hub Slack workspace, where delegates from each group announce, discuss, and coordinate efforts in North America.
The Hub is hosted by the North American Kurdish Alliance, but it's not run by anyone. It's a meeting place to work in harmony as one, united movement. Together, we are the friends beyond the mountains. Click the button below to add your group and join The Coordination Hub Slack workspace.

Who Are The Kurds?
The Kurds are the largest stateless ethnic group on Earth. The home of the Kurds, Kurdistan, is the mountainous region that crosses the borders of present-day south-eastern Turkey, northern Iraq, western Iran, and northern Syria; each called Bakur, Bashur, Rojhilat, and Rojava, the Kurdish words for north, south, east, and west.
The Kurds have been persecuted and oppressed under all four nation-states that claim the land under their feet for generations. Kurds have been subjected to genocide, brutal repression, denied autonomy, and even the freedom to be Kurdish, to speak the language or practice Kurdish culture.
