JWW is joined by World Uyghur Congress and Uyghur Human Rights Project as grantees, selected in-part for their advocacy of and for the Uyghur community. At least 1.8 million Uyghurs have been separated from their families and forced into “re-education camps” since 2017 in northwest China or East Turkestan, according to the foundation.
“The opportunity to work alongside our valued allies at the Eli Wiesel Foundation and in collaboration with Jewish World Watch and World Uyghur Congress is of enormous value,” Omer Kanat, executive director of the Uyghur Human Rights Project, said in a statement.
“The conference in December will be a chance to demonstrate a commitment to upholding the vow of ’never again’ in solidarity, and to call for further action to stop ongoing genocide.”
