International Issues

We are pained and challenged by the millions of refugees worldwide including the plight of the more than 11 million Syrian and Middle Eastern refugees who have been forced to flee their homes because of ongoing violence.

Responding to the Crisis in Syria

For five years, the Syrian conflict has raged, with an unimaginable human cost. Over 50% of Syrians have been forced to flee their homes, and hundreds of thousands of civilians have died as a result. The Assad regime has targeted airstrikes, chemical attacks, and sieges against noncombatants. Indiscriminate attacks against civilians in hospitals, schools, and supermarkets offend our shared humanity, and the U.S. has an obligation to take action as a global leader on human rights.
