WASHINGTON (BP) — China’s increasingly repressive regime will receive the attention of a panel of experts today in a webinar hosted by the Southern Baptist Ethics & Religious Liberty Commission.

The hour-long event — “China’s Rising Threat to Human Rights” – will begin at 1 p.m. EDT. Registration for the webinar is available at https://erlc.com/events/chinas-rising-threat-to-human-rights/.

The focus of the webinar will be the Chinese Communist Party’s oppression of Uyghur Muslims in the Xinjiang region in the northwest part of the country. The intensification of China’s decades-long violations of religious freedom and other human rights has recently included the imprisonment of more than a million Uyghur Muslims in re-education camps

Among the speakers will be Sam Brownback, ambassador at large for international religious freedom at the U.S. State Department, and ERLC President Russell Moore.
