WHEN:           Saturday, April 6, 2019, at 1:00 PM
WHO:             Members of Congress, human rights leaders, Uyghur Americans, representatives of Muslim, Christian, Buddhist, and Jewish faith communities, concerned citizens.

Join us April 6th to add your voice to those urging swift action by the U.S. Congress, U.S. Administration, and the international community. It is time for international action to end Chinese government’s brutal repression of the Uyghur people. The Chinese government has established a militarized police state equipped with cutting-edge surveillance technology in the Uyghur homeland of East Turkestan, and has swept an estimated 1.5 to 2 million people into a massive system of ethnic-concentration camps.

Experts have called the persecution of Uyghurs in China “a massive crime against humanity” and a case of “Never Again” happening again in the 21st century.

We will be joined by Members of Congress and speakers from numerous civil society organizations including Amnesty International, World Uyghur Congress, Uyghur American Association, Uyghur Human Rights Project, the Uyghur American Association, Campaign for Uyghurs, Uyghur Academy USA, Uyghur Rally, International Campaign for Tibet, Soundvision, and Burma Task Force.
