ICYMI: REP. TED LIEU’S MSNBC OP-ED WITH JUDITH ROWLAND OF GLOBAL CITIZEN:
"SYRIAN REFUGEE CRISIS CREATES HUGE GAP IN EDUCATION FOR KIDS” 

Online at MSNBC, Rep. Ted W. Lieu and Judith Rowland, U.S. Policy and Advocacy Manager at Global Citizen, urge the United States
and other countries to act as leaders and support critical, lifesaving funding for education in humanitarian emergencies.

We risk losing a generation of our brightest minds to the cruel cycle of a protracted crisis.
We need donor countries — especially the United States — to lead the charge and ensure that all children have access to education, today and in the future.”

As the Syrian crisis has shown us, the stability of the developing world is vital for the security interests of the United States.
Investing in a more secure future for children is the way to protect those interests and combat extremist forces that prey upon disengaged youth.
