In besieged Idlib, young Syrians hope Trump can save them.

"In Syria’s Idlib province, residents fear the worst humanitarian crisis in eight years of war. A deal signed last year was supposed to make it a demilitarized buffer zone, but Syrian and Russian forces have unleashed an onslaught, catching millions in the crossfire. Nick Schifrin reports on how Idlib residents, U.S. interfaith leaders and lawmakers are pushing for President Trump to step in."

"In Idlib's valley of the shadow of death there is no walking to safety, only running. And praying on this day the bomb misses its target...  

Just this month nearly 200,000 have fled their homes. They know they have to leave, but they have nowhere to go"
- Nick Schifrin, PBS Newshour
"This is a "never again" moment for us. We are asking him to draw a red line with those countering forces to not let this happen and to stop what could potentially be one of the worst humanitarian crises we've ever seen"

- Rev. Greg Warren, St. Peter's Episcopal, and signee of the letter
Below is the letter we sent to the President. So far, 33 organizations, faith groups and leaders, schools, and community groups have signed on.
