Emergency Phonebank 4 Aleppo

December 15, 2016 @ 11:00 am - 5:00 pm

Syrian regime, Russian, and Iranian-backed forces have taken control of 98% of Aleppo, Syria. Civilians, aid workers, and activists in East Aleppo are sending out “final messages” to the world as pro-regime forces continue to close in on the city.

Some 100,000 civilians are crammed into 2 small districts awaiting a massacre after pro-regime military dominated by Iran-backed foreign fighters and Russian warplanes made rapid gains in East Aleppo over the past two weeks. Mass executions have been reported in multiple areas that the regime seized.

Too many of our elected officials are silent as genocide destroys lives. Together, let’s call on the White House and Congress to rescue the 100,000 civilians still trapped in Aleppo and to allow humanitarian organizations to safely provide aid. Together, let’s answer the millions of cries for help with a message of hope. Together, let’s make “Never Again” a reality for Syrians.

Join us at the University of Houston on Thursday, Dec. 15th any time between 11 a.m. and 5 p.m. for a phone banking event to call on our representatives to answer to us. We’ll provide the scripts and the contact information — just bring yourself and a phone!
