TCA Provides Grant for ACBH Delegation WDC Visit

Image TCA provided a $5,000 grant to the Advisory Council for Bosnia and Herzegovina (ACBH) to support an ACBH delegation visit from Bosnia and Herzegovina (BiH) to the United States. The delegation, which visited Washington, DC April 18-24, 2016, was comprised of Munira Subasic, President of the Mother's Action of the Srebrenica and Zepa Enclaves; Murat Tahirovic, President of the Association of Victims and Witnesses of Genocide; and Elmina Kulasic, Senior Advisor at the Association of Victims and Witnesses of Genocide.
TCA's grant is part of the ongoing partnership between TCA and ACBH in support of strengthening the relationship between the Turkish and Bosnian American communities.

While in Washington, the delegation met with members of Congress, State Department officials, the U.S. Helsinki Commission, the U.S. Institute of Peace, TCA representatives, and other policymakers. They discussed the importance of the human rights situation in BiH, the denial of crimes committed during the war in BiH, and the completion of the International Criminal Tribunal for former Yugoslavia at The Hague. They also spoke about the importance of BiH for regional stability and cooperation. Subasic served as the keynote speaker at Bosnian Women's Day on Capitol Hill on April 21, 2016. Finally, during the visit ACBH hosted a screening of a documentary film dealing with sexual violence that was produced by the two associations represented on the delegation.
