Rachel Corrie's life story has found its place as a symbolic example of conscience, courage and justice in world history. Born on April 10, 1979, in Washington state of the United States, Corrie has shown a deep sensitivity to social justice and peace issues since her youth. Corrie, who turned to peace activism throughout her education at The Evergreen State College, actively participated in the struggle for justice and peace by collaborating with groups such as "Olympians for Peace and Solidarity".

Rachel Corrie's life journey is an impressive story that identifies with the core values of the Conscience Foundation. He was an individual who opposed injustice and oppression all over the world, listened to the voice of his conscience and fought for this cause. By adopting these values of Corrie, our Foundation continues its efforts to continue advocating justice and peace in the world. Corrie's life has been a powerful inspiration for such efforts by our foundation.

Corrie's struggle in the Gaza Strip is one of the most striking and unforgettable examples of her activism. Israel's international solidarity and human rights advocacy in opposing house demolitions in Gaza is a concrete demonstration of its struggle. Until his tragic death by an Israeli bulldozer on March 16, 2003, his struggle became an integral part of the global push for human rights.

The tragic death of Rachel Corrie had a great impact all over the world and brought the harsh realities of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict to the international agenda. Corrie's death was deeply saddened by human rights organisations, activist groups and peace-loving communities, and her struggle has been a source of inspiration for people seeking peace and justice around the world.

Rachel Corrie's life and dedication deeply influenced the mission and activities of the Conscience Foundation. Corrie has shown the whole world the power of conscience standing against injustice and oppression, and with this inspiration, our foundation continues its efforts to raise the voice of every individual fighting for justice and peace and to create positive changes in society.

Our foundation works actively on justice, human rights and peace around the world to honor the memory of Rachel Corrie and keep her values alive. Corrie's legacy strengthens our foundation's work and encourages us to reach out to large audiences and create positive change.

Rachel Corrie's life is a great inspiration to us, not only in the fight for human rights and activism, but also in intercultural understanding and sacrifice. The extraordinary sacrifice he shows for people of a different religion, language and race, who are generally seen as "others" by his own culture and society, is an act that requires deep understanding and empathy, especially towards a society outside his own country and culture. Leaving behind a comfortable and safe environment, he stood by the Palestinian people in the Gaza Strip, which has a completely different cultural and social structure, and raised his voice against the difficulties they experienced. This action of Rachel Corrie is considered as a struggle for solidarity and humanity that goes beyond the limits of conscience.

This courage and dedication he showed clearly reveals why he is such a great example of conscience on a universal scale. This deep empathy and dedication to people from different cultures, languages and religions forms the basis for the Conscience Foundation and directs us to work for a more inclusive and fair world by embracing cultural diversity. By building bridges between diverse communities, Rachel Corrie inspires and guides us to make our world a more understanding and peaceful place.

Rachel Corrie's conscience and struggle remind us that when we act collectively and strive together for justice, peace and human rights, we can make the world a better place. By keeping Corrie's memory alive and embracing her values, our Foundation will continue to move towards making these ideals a reality.

Rachel Corrie's life has been an inspiration to every individual standing against injustice and oppression around the world. As Vicdan Foundation, we follow his legacy and aim to be a part of social change by advocating for peace, justice and human rights in the world. Corrie's courage and determination will always be a guide for our foundation and encourage us to fight for a more just world.
