Religious Freedom in Syria: The Sole Foundation for Lasting Peace

Syrian, US, and international experts will explain why a pluralistic and inclusive, non-sectarian, democracy providing equal rights for all Syrians is the only acceptable solution for the wounds of Syria’s brutal civil war. Religious freedom is the true antidote to the ideology of Daesh. And it exists now in Syria’s Democratic Self-Administration—the home of the multi-religious, multi-ethnic Syrian Democratic Forces.

Topics:
1. The Pluralistic Model for Religious Freedom in Northern Syria’s Democratic Self-Administration Based On Voluntary Reconciliation Among Kurds, Christians, Arabs, and Others.

2. Devastation in Afrin by Turkey’s Mercenary Islamist Forces: A Sanctuary of Human Rights and Religious Freedom Still Being Destroyed by an Occupying Turkish Army.

3. Strategic Choices Facing the US and Its Allies That Can Will Support or Destroy Religious Freedom and the Hopes of Christians, Kurds, Yazidis, and other Syrian minorities.
