Wednesday, March 11 - Thursday, March 12, 2020
Nine years since Syrians peacefully took to the streets to demand their rights and freedom, we invite you to join us for a series of events among friends -- old and new -- who continue to amplify, honor, and further the principles of the Syrian Revolution.
Syrian American organizations are coming together in our nation's capital from March 11-12 to commemorate the ninth anniversary of the Syrian revolution. Join us as we engage with government officials and the Syrian American community, outlining the necessary steps to hold the oppressive Syrian regime accountable and to bring justice and freedom to the Syrian people.
As we gather to commend the work of Syrian American organizations and the community in successfully advocating for the passage of the Caesar Syria Civilian Protection Act, we now turn our attention to the implementation of this important legislation and keep the focus on the worsening humanitarian situation in Idlib and other vital topics.
For two days, Syrians and friends of Syrians will come together to remember, honor, and work alongside each other to become the most effective advocates that they can be.
Join us for an unforgettable two-day event.
