The Washington Rescue Committee for Syrian Refugees is the brainchild of Hussein Ali and a team of dedicated individuals in the greater Seattle area who are passionate about the plight of refugees fleeing the war in Syria, and how to best assist them in their lives as they seek refuge and are resettled in the United States.
The Committee began with an informative and brainstorming event at the University of Washington's Seattle campus on Sept. 5, 2015, with the immediate goal of drumming up ideas for a letter that concerned citizens could utilize to lobby their representatives, both in Washington state and Washington D.C. Ideas from this event both contributed to this goal, as well as hearkened to possible steps beyond this first task.
