Please join the Harriman Institute, the Center for the Study of Human Rights, and the Advocacy Project of Washington, DC, for a brownbag discussion with Beba Hadzic, the founder of BOSFAM, an organization in Srebenica, Bosnia-Herzegovina, that employs local women to produce handicrafts. BOSFAM is known for creating Memorial Quilts, which remember those who have died during the Bosnian war. Mrs. Hadzic will be in the USA thanks to a grant from the Hermann Boll Foundation to raise awareness about the economic hardships faced by rural women in Bosnia.
