Today’s Action: Stop the Uyghur Muslim genocide in China

China has placed over one million Uyghur Muslims into concentration camps. The ethnic minority Turkic Uyghurs number approximately half the population of the resource-rich Xinjiang region of Western China…and they are being disappeared in a real-time genocide that desperately demands global response.

The detained Uyghur Muslims are physically and psychologically tortured, and there are reports of waterboarding and sterilization. Recent reports also suggest the Chinese government is harvesting organs, cutting open the victims bodies for kidneys, hearts, livers, and more while the prisoners are kept alive. Activists say the bodies of the dead in the camps are being cremated, so it is difficult to tell how many have been killed thus far. And all Uyghurs have been forced to renounce Islam, the practice of which has been criminalized.

Trump has stayed silent, along with other world leaders. We must push, not just our government, but corporations and community hard on this issue. Here are several ways to help:

No genocide should be ignored. Help spread the word for Uyghur Muslims today.
