On January 22, TDA launched the Communicator’s project in Idlib, Syria. The Communicators will organize small, public gatherings to discuss community organizing, civilian security and transitional justice in their communities. The Communicators received training in communications skills, facilitation and the organization of civic forums. The project seeks to strengthen democratic principles, and preserve and encourage space for dialogue and discussion among citizens.
The first few events were held in early February. Two of the discussions were with rebels groups, one with women and one with youth at a local high school.
