The association Voice of Ezidis, co-founded in Paris in 2019 by survivors of the 2014 genocide perpetrated by the so-called Islamic State, is committed to the support of the Ezidi community, both in France, where some refugee families have fled since the beginning of the genocide, and in Iraq, where a lot of Ezidis still reside. Voice of Ezidis defends the rights of the Ezidi people and advocates for the awareness and recognition of the genocide it endured in 2014.
Ezidis are one of the most ancient ethno-religious indigenous minorities still existing today, as the first traces of their existence date back to the ancient Mesopotemian civilization. Nowadays, Ezidis mainly live in Sinjar, a region of Iraq. However, smaller communities are present all over the world as a result of discrimination throughout history.
