I Am Syria Campaign Launched:
In 2012, the Summer Institute was invited by former international war crimes prosecutor Professor David Crane to launch a campaign to spread awareness about the atrocities in Syria, as well as express solidarity with the Syrian people. Since then, our staff, interns, and students went into overdrive, producing a webpage, social media presence, and video—all located at www.iamsyria.org The premise of the campaign is that when one Syrian suffers, all of our humanity is diminished. We encourage you to use your Facebook page or Twitter account to pass along the site’s address to your connections, friends, and followers. You can go even further by showing your support by making a brief video through your laptop or cell phone. Tell the Syrian people that they are not alone and that the world is behind them. Get involved...join the movement...We are Syria!
