Webinar:  Faith Community Responding to Crisis in Syria and Iraq

How can the faith community respond more fully, clearly, and effectively to the crisis in Syria and Iraq? We will discuss the regional dynamics such as the background, role of regional players, and key proposals. Then we will discuss the U.S. role in the crisis in terms of our strategic policy, the AUMF, and our impact on the region. Finally, we will propose one or two action items for the faith community to engage. There will be time for discussion  from all participants.
