A member of the Syrian Hoosier community, Kenan Rahmani, had the privilege to go inside Syria and see the atrocities occurring there first-hand. He was fortunate enough to be able to meet with the people of a small city in Syria called Kafranbel. Since the beginning of the revolution, these brave civilians have used their creativity and artistic skills to ensure that their voices are being heard. Kenan was able to bring back many of these ORIGINAL drawings made by the people in Kafranbel to the US. See these one of a kind posters from the revolution. These posters symbolize the plight Syrians are facing on a day-to-day basis. You will not want to miss out on seeing the historic artwork from this peaceful revolution.

There will be an optional Student Admission Fee of $5. 100% of this money will be going straight to the people of the city of Kafrnabel. FREE Food and Refreshments will be provided!

Syria’s revolution is now in its 22nd month and Dictator Bashar al-Assad shows no sign of giving up anytime soon. To date, more than 65,000 innocent civilians have been killed by the Assad regime, including 4,300+ children. There are more than 714,000 Syrian refugees in neighboring countries and more than 4 MILLION people have now been displaced inside the country. And every day the situation in Syria is getting exponentially worst.

Donating a few dollars will go a long way in making a difference in a Syrian’s life.
