Time’s 100 Most Influential: Award to Biram Dah Abeid

IRA – USA is very honored to announce that Biram Dah Abeid is among Time Magazine’s “100 most influential” people in the world today.

Anti-Slavery International’s president, Aidan McQuade, writes that Biram “is an inspiration to thousands who continue to resist slavery in Mauritania and beyond.”

IRA – USA was established at the request of Biram. Our mission is to fight against slavery, state racism and gender oppression in Mauritania. We support the work of IRA – Mauritania, as well as other Mauritanian human rights organizations.

We are delighted that IRA Mauritania has won this international recognition, despite the on-going police actions against IRA in Mauritania.
