BGR Government Affairs

BGR Government Affairs has signed on as DC representative for the Syrian Institute for Progress.

Founded in 2012, the California-based non-profit is working to promote the civil and human rights of all people living in Syria as the civil uprising against Bashar Assad has entered its 11th year.

President Biden, who ordered airstrikes in February against Iran-backed militias in Syria, is reviewing US policy regarding the war-torn country.

There are 900 American troops in Syria, supporting Kurdish fighters and keeping the country’s oil from Assad.

BGR’s Lester Munson, who worked as deputy assistant administrator for the US Agency for International Development during the Bush II administration, and Mark Tavlarides, director of legislative affairs at the National Security Council in the Clinton White House, handle the SIP account.
