Suhair Atassi is a political activist who runs the Jamal Atassi Forum group on Facebook that's an extension of the banned Jamal Atassi Forum in Syria. The forum calls for political reforms in Syria and the reinstatement of civil rights and the cancellation of the emergency law that has suspended constitutional rights since 1963.

Atassi has been threatened and harassed by Syrian security more than once and has been ordered to close the online group. She refuses to comply and is believed to be in danger of arrest at any time, and her personal ID card has been confiscated by state security forces.
