Iraqi and American Reconciliation Project (IARP)
We support the rebuilding of relationships, cultural understanding and respect, and a country torn apart by decades of war, sanctions, and occupation. We focus on the arts, education, cultural and professional exchange, and water and sanitation projects.
We are Iraqis and Americans, veterans and refugees, peace activists and artists, students and professionals, and many others united by our work for reconciliation.
The Iraqi and American Reconciliation Project (IARP) was established in July of 2007 as grassroots, citizen-based support in the United States for the Muslim Peacemaker Teams (MPT) in Iraq. IARP and MPT operate as partner nonprofit organizations in the United States and Iraq, respectively.
