Two student groups are teaming up on Friday to demonstrate on behalf of refugees displaced by the ongoing crisis in Syria.

Campus Peace Action and Students Organize for Syria are planning the rally for 12:30 tomorrow at the Reflection Pond.


According to a Facebook page created for the event, the purpose of the rally is “to show support for Syrian refugees and help break stereotypes about immigrants.”

The mission statement of Campus Peace Action is “to turn fear into understanding, intolerance into acceptance, and apathy into action through education, community building, and creativity at the University of Central Florida.”
