Together, we must speak out and call for an immediate cessation of all bombing campaigns and military actions that perpetuate this terrible war.
As a global community, we must also respond with compassion and immediacy to the pressing needs of millions of refugees and internally displaced people. And we must stand in solidarity with those who suffer the double-jeopardy of displacement followed by the experience of racial or religious profiling and demonization. Sadly, given the latest failure to broker a cease-fire, all of these efforts are sorely needed.
U.S. faith communities including the Fellowship of Reconciliation have collectively endorsed A Call for an End to the War in Syria (PDF). We encourage you to share the statement in your community, and contact GlobalDayforSyria@gmail.com if your organization would like to be listed as an endorser.
