We invite you to join Kayla‘s List PAC. Kayla’s List PAC is a federal non-connected PAC. Kayla Mueller was a wonderful human being who sacrificed her life for her beliefs in global citizenship and support of humanity. In 2013, she was kidnapped by ISIS terrorists while helping Syrian women and children refugees. Kayla was held in captivity for 18 months until she was brutally murdered by her captors in 2015. Unfortunately, Kayla was not the only one to suffer this horrific fate. Hundreds of thousands of Syrians have lost their lives since the revolution broke out in 2011, and thousands more will continue to die if we do not take action.
In order to honor Kayla’s memory and to ensure that her sacrifice does not go in vain, we are aiming to promote congressional candidates that support freedom, social & economic justice, and dignity for people across the globe. The Syrian Revolution is a global movement which will change politics around the world. The blood of Syrians is being spilled for all of humanity, not just for Syria.
Please contribute $1100 to be a member. $100 is allocated towards administration costs. Throughout the year, we will identify candidates supportive of our cause for a free, democratic, secular, and pluralistic Syria. When we have an event, we will call you and ask that you write check or click on a link to contribute $1000. Or an individual can contribute the max of $5000 per year to the PAC.
* PACs can give $5,000 to a candidate committee per election (primary, general or special). They can also give up to $15,000 annually to any national party committee, and $5,000 annually to any other PAC. Contributions from corporations, foreign nationals and minors are prohibited. (Contributions from US permanent residents/green cardholders, however, are permitted.) The maximum contribution per individual is $5,000 per year and up to $10,000 per year for couples per PAC.
We at Kayla’s List PAC, the largest Syrian American political action committee, understand the tensions behind the operation by the Turkish Government to rid its border of YPG/PKK terrorists, and the potential grave consequences of inaction. We also know quite well that the underlying evil for this situation has been and will be the butcher of Damascus Bashar al-Assad, and until such time that he is removed there will be no resolution.
We support the establishment of a safe zone in northern Syria to help the return of Syrian refugees. We support the elimination of terrorist elements from northern Syria, and consider Syrian Kurds as part of the Syrian people.
United States policy to support the Marxist YPG/PKK has always been misguided, and replaced one set of problems with another. The YPG/PKK disenfranchised non-YPG/PKK Kurds and Arabs alike.
We urge the Administration and Congress to realign its foreign policy with the hopes and aspirations of the Syrian people for a free, pluralistic and democratic Syria. We urge active coordination with local Kurds and Arab civil societies to protect all civilians from all backgrounds.
We would like to thank those involved who are finally establishing safe zones that Syrians have been advocating for the last eight years to provide safe haven for the many displaced Syrians.
