Media Tower, Meeting Point 15th floor, Taborstrasse 1-3, 1020 Vienna
Women without Borders / SAVE the Federal Ministry of Labour, Social Affairs and Consumer Protection and the U.S. Embassy Vienna invite you to an extraordinary panel presentation featuring the testimonies of mothers whose sons and daughters became radicalized and chose to travel to Syria. These mothers, who have lived through an experience inaccessible to many others involved in the prevention of violent extremism, are uniting in Vienna to share their stories in person for the first time.
In bravely speaking out, the mothers translate their shattering experience into a way forward – to support each other and heighten global awareness. They pave the way for other struggling families to break the silence and stigmatization and instead to respond more effectively to safeguard their children from the lure of violent ideologies and their recruiters.
This will be a unique opportunity to hear mothers’ voices speaking out against violent extremism, as new allies in a new security architecture.

Mr. Rudolf Hundstorfer, Austrian Minister for Labour, Social Affairs’ and Consumer Protection
Eric K. Lundberg, Counselor for Economic and Political Affairs, U.S. Embassy, Vienna
