Fight Trump’s Syria Hypocrisy

 

Over the past few days, we’ve been in touch with members of Congress who all want to know how progressives should respond to the horrors of what we’re seeing in Syria. We have to start by not turning our backs on the children remaining in Syria who want to escape this terrible war.

Sign our petition telling Congress that any debate over Syria must start with welcoming refugees.

We’ve been hard at work responding to Trump’s missile strikes and putting forward alternatives that would actually hold Assad and all perpetrators of war crimes in Syria accountable. Together, we’ve demanded Congress come back from vacation to debate these important issues.

But our hearts are breaking and the truth is there is no clear, foolproof, strategic response – just as there’s no shortage of bad actors. One thing is clear though, we cannot forget that the families who were gassed and killed are the very same families Trump wants to ban from taking refuge in the United States.

That’s why we’ve partnered with our friends at the Progressive Change Campaign Committee to make it clear where we stand. Whether Congress gets back to work tomorrow or in two weeks, the first thing on the agenda should be working to open America’s doors to more Syrian refugees.

Let’s show our compassion by opening our doors, not dropping bombs.

Sign our petition telling Congress that any debate over Syria must start with welcoming refugees.

There are no easy answers when it comes to Syria, and while we will continue to fight to end the horrors of this war, we can all agree that it would be hypocritical and morally wrong to participate in any bombing campaign that would kill or injure Syrian civilians who are trapped there. We need your voice and your help. Share this with your friends and family.
