Thursday, March 7th - Saturday, March 9th, 2019
Eight years since Syrians peacefully took to the streets to demand their rights and freedoms, 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 7 to 9 to commemorate the 8th 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.
For three 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 weekend.
