IamA David Lazar, I'm the Chairman of an Assyrian Political Organization, working to help Christians and Yezidis of Iraq AMA!
I'm the current chairman of the American Mesopotamian Organization, a grassroots non-profit political organization which is dedicated to advancing the rights of Assyrians around the world. I have been an Assyrian activist since my college days, and I have held numerous leadership positions with several Assyrian American organizations. In 1991 I co-founded Assyrian Aid Society, the largest Assyrian humanitarian organization in the world, with offices and operations globally. Since ISIS invaded northern Iraq's Nineveh plain, I have been in daily contact with people on the ground there, monitoring and directing humanitarian aid operations and logistics.
