Soraya was a champion in Kurdish democratic movement, a human rights activist, an advocate of gender equality, the vice president of Kurdish National Congress of North America, and the director of Kurdish American Committee for Democracy in Iran. She passed away on early Morning of July 24th 2006 possibly due to complications of an asthma attack. Soraya is survived by her husband Tom Ver Ploeg, and her two sons, Aveen and Daryan. Location and details for her honoring ceremony will be announced later. -- Kurdish National Congress of North Amercia
