On September 2, 2012, United to End Genocide joined in solidarity with the people of Syria by co-sponsoring a march and rally in front of the White House. President and CEO Tom Andrews offered his remarks, demanding that the violence must end.

The event was hosted by Syrian American organizations, including the Syrian American Council, Syrian Emergency Task Force and Syrian Expatriates Organization. It was also supported by Amnesty International USA.

Several thousand people were in attendance at the event, which included prominent speakers from the Syrian American community, along with compelling slam poetry and rap performances. Photos of the event can be found here.
