HRANT DINK FOUNDATION
WAS ESTABLISHED IN 2007 AFTER THE PAINFUL
EVENT ON JANUARY 19TH, IN ORDER TO AVOID
SIMILAR PAINS AND TO CONTINUE HRANT DINK’S
LEGACY, HIS LANGUAGE AND HEART AND HIS
DREAM OF A WORLD THAT IS MORE FREE AND
JUST. DEMOCRACY AND HUMAN RIGHTS FOR
EVERYONE REGARDLESS OF THEIR ETHNIC,
RELIGIOUS OR CULTURAL ORIGIN OR GENDER IS
THE FOUNDATION’S MAIN PRINCIPLE.

THE FOUNDATION AIMS FOR A CONVENTION
WHERE FREEDOM OF EXPRESSION IS LIMITLESS
AND ALL DIFFERENCES ARE ALLOWED, LIVED,
APPRECIATED AND MULTIPLIED. IT WORKS FOR
A TURKEY AND A WORLD, WHERE NOT THE LAND
ITSELF BUT THE LIFE ON IT IS VALUED, AND
CONSCIENCE OUTWEIGHS IN THE WAY WE LOOK
AT TODAY AND THE PAST. AS THE INTERNATIONAL
HRANT DINK FOUNDATION ‘OUR CAUSE WORTH
LIVING’ IS SUCH A FUTURE WHERE A CULTURE OF
DIALOGUE, PEACE AND EMPATHY PREVAILS.
