Larsa Organization is a well-established non-profit organization working to restore peace in Iraq, a country that has been suffering from sectarian violence since 2003. Larsa has accomplished many bridge-building projects between different religious traditions and minorities. They focus on promoting minorities’ rights and a culture of tolerance and active citizenship. The group is proud of its involvement in the We Are All Citizens Project in Iraq, which was developed by the Dutch organization (PAX) in partnership with them and in cooperation with the EU and Dutch MOFA. The project aimed at reinforcing citizenship and avoiding the sectarian tension and violence in Iraq. Members organize many activities, campaigns, events, workshops and festivals as well. In addition, they screen many documentaries. Larsa has published a religion heritage book under the supervision of the Director of Antiquities and Heritage Inspectorates in Basra and the representative of UNESCO in Iraq. The book is dedicated to the documentation of archaeological sites and serves to educate young people about cultural heritage and the importance of preserving it.
