Come to Washington and directly lobby House and Senate offices on Thursday and Friday, April 25 & 26, 2013, to support the Syrian revolution. This event is hosted by the Coalition for a Democratic Syria.
There are signs of bipartisan support and demand for action calling for increased US engagement in support of Syria's revolution for democracy and human rights. Now it's time for YOU to speak to your Members of Congress and urge them to join!
How to participate:
Step 1: RSVP to sign up. Give us your address with ZIP code so we can schedule a meeting with the appropriate member of Congress. Please also tell us if you have met with your Representative or Senators before. (If you have, the personal connection may make it easier for you to get a meeting.)
Step 2: Plan your trip. Please plan to arrive in Washington, DC Wednesday evening, April 24th. We will hold a brief orientation session early Thursday morning, where we will give you materials to take with you to your meeting, update you on the relevant pieces of legislation, and answer any questions you may have.
Step 3: Meet with your Representative or Senator and ask them to vote for legislation that supports Syria's revolution for democracy and human rights! Congress does not have the power to order intervention, but they can set aside money for programs to increase humanitarian aid, help support civilian governance efforts in the liberated areas, help rebuild Syria, and pressure President Obama to take assertive action.
Congress is considering action, but we need YOUR support to make sure they follow through.
