The Rohingya have experienced decades of persecution and violence, largely perpetrated by Burmese security services and the government. The roots of anti-Rohingya sentiments and discrimination lie in a longstanding belief in Burma that Rohingya are not “native” to Burma but arrived from Bangladesh during British colonial rule.
The International Interfaith Peace Corps’ (IIPC) Rohingya Campaign works to leverage influence of the religious community to build the moral and political will to bring justice to the Rohingya people leading to their peace and security, prosperity.
IIPC is building a community of champions who speak out on behalf of the Rohingya people and amplify their voices.
In the coming year we will work with religious leaders and congregations, private sector leaders and students, particularly those motivated by the faith.
