    At this panel discussion and press conference held in New York City on June 24th, 2017 by the Interfaith Unity for Tolerance, Representative Tulsi Gabbard joined a panel discussion about how academic and legislative responses to terrorism are complementary approaches that will provide long term and intellectual responses to terrorism.

    In a press release about the event, the IFUT said that this discussion "will lead towards nuanced understanding and informed solutions."  

    Gabbard said, “I think that there has been a concerted effort both on the part of some in the media, as well as many in politics, and many in our foreign policy establishment seem to have been advocating for a continuance of these regime change wars, really ignoring the fact of what has been the consequence of these wars in countries like Iraq and Libya and Syria, where each time we have waged these wars, [it] has resulted in the strengthening of terrorist groups like Al-Qaeda or the creation of ISIS [Islamic State, IS, formerly ISIL], and it has resulted in a tremendous amount of suffering and death for the people of these countries."

    In November 2016, Founding Fellow and Congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard met with President-elect Donald Trump to discuss the ongoing crisis in Syria. 

    This article, written by Rep. Gabbard, summarizes the meeting and outlines the recommendations that she put forward to President Trump about how the U.S. could and should approach the Syrian civil war - including stopping U.S. interventionism and supporting groups with ties to Al Qaeda.

    She states: "The crux of my advice to President-elect Trump was this: We must end this ill-conceived, counterproductive regime-change war immediately. We must focus our precious resources on investing in and rebuilding our own country and on defeating Al Qaeda, ISIS, and other terrorist groups that pose a threat to the American people.
