In the spring of 2017, the Chinese Government launched a systematic campaign against the Uyghur ethnic minority, who are largely Muslim, using indiscriminate internment in detention camps. According to the Chinese government’s own websites, there are currently 1.5 million Uyghur Muslims in Chinese concentration camps. Please sign on to the letter linked below to tell our Senators to co-sponsor the Uyghur Human Rights Policy Act of 2019 and share widely on social media.
