On Wednesday, Sept. 26, the Senate Foreign Relations Committee is scheduled to mark up the Caesar Syria Civilian Protection Act (HR 1677), which imposes comprehensive sanctions on the Assad regime and its allies for human rights abuses and attacks against Syrian civilians.
Call on your senators to add their voices to support this vital human rights accountability tool and demand that it be taken up by the Senate and passed.
HR 1677 is a unique bipartisan measure that prohibits the transfer of arms and materials to Syria that would likely be used to commit further human rights abuses. It also highlights the atrocities carried out by Assad and his allies, ultimately forcing accountability by guaranteeing the collection and preservation of evidence for future prosecutions of human rights abuses.
Take action now. Contact your senators today.
