SETF is a Humanitarian Non-Profit American Organization pursuing justice, democracy, and peace in Syria
The Syrian Emergency Task Force was originally established to advocate on behalf of the Syrian people in the United States Government. We have never lost sight of that objective. We believe that it is the responsibility of the United States to play a leadership role in the world to help stop the slaughter of civilians in Syria because an end to the violence serves both US National Interests and aligns with our core values and principles that our country was founded on. Protecting civilians is also key in our fight against terrorism in the region and globally.
SETF understands the fact that peace is impossible without justice. We have regularly strived to support documentation efforts of the war crimes carried out against the Syrian people. In our partnership with the Ceaser team and renowned experts of international humanitarian law we have continuously pursued legal prosecutions of war criminals all over the world. In pursuit of justice we have accomplished the following and continue to work on bringing new court cases against perpetrators of war crimes:

We hold workshops focused on Transitional Justice, Reconciliation, and support to youth minorities and women on the ground in Syria. The following are some examples of our activities:
