What is AFS?

We are a nonpartisan nonprofit organization that lobbies for freedom, human rights, rule of law, and secular democracy for the Syrian people. We educate the U.S. government on the importance of U.S. support for these goals. We train American activists across the country and provide them the tools they need to be effective “citizen lobbyists” on behalf of the Syrian cause.

Our work is powered by donations from American citizens from diverse ethnic and religious backgrounds. We do not receive any support from other governments or political organizations.
