The civil war continues in Syria. Thanks to action by hundreds of thousands of people like you, a threat of a U.S. missile attack against Syria was averted. The massive outpouring of anti-war sentiment from the people in every corner of the country and around the world prevented a US military strike.
But the raging civil war continues and the scope of the humanitarian crisis grows. Our victory was clear, but our work is far from over.
- What's happening now, on the ground in Syria and on the diplomatic front?
- How did the peace movement in the U.S. and world-wide stop Washington from proceeding with military action in Syria
- How can we build on our success to change U.S. policy in the region?
A dynamic panel will address these questions and our next steps to change US policy in the region.
