Founded in Burr Ridge, Ill. in 2005 the Syrian Advocacy Group works to "build civil society in Syria and encourage respect for civil liberties and human rights." Since the outbreak of the Syrian civil war, the SAC has changed its efforts.
According to the SAC web page, they now concentrate on, "organizing town hall meetings and political events. [They have] engaged with U.S. government officials, think tank leaders and both U.S.-based and international NGOs.
"Our work is tailored to help support civilian efforts to build a free, democratic, and inclusive Syria. Our fundraising efforts come in response to the enormous humanitarian disaster the Syrian crisis has produced."
For example, SAC held, "Rebuilding Syria Together" on August 26-27, 2013 in Gaziantep, Turkey.
Past events in the US include Family Night with Wasfi Maasarani in Irving, Tex. and "Peaceful Defiance: Art from the Syrian Revolution" in Atlanta, Ga.
Of particular note was, "Hungry, Tortured, & Abandoned: A Dinner & Fundraiser for the Syrian People" held at the Guilford Ave. United Methodist Church in Indianapolis.
