An open letter to the U.S. Senate

Support S.1252 for Uyghur Human Rights

6 so far! Help us get to 10 signers!

I am writing to urge you to support S. 1252, the Uyghur Policy Act of 2023. This crucial piece of legislation aims to address the severe human rights abuses faced by Uyghurs and other ethnic groups in the Xinjiang Uyghur Autonomous Region (XUAR) of China. The Chinese Communist Party (CCP) has engaged in systematic repression of the Uyghurs' distinct Turkic identity and Islamic faith. These actions include mass internment, forced labor, and severe restrictions on religious practices and cultural expressions. Such practices violate fundamental human rights and international law, including the International Covenant on Economic, Social, and Cultural Rights, which China has ratified. By supporting the Uyghur Policy Act of 2023, the United States can take a stand against these atrocities. This bill not only seeks to hold those responsible accountable but also aims to promote the protection and preservation of the Uyghur identity and culture. As a nation committed to justice and human rights, it is imperative that we do not remain silent in the face of such egregious violations. It is often said that without justice, there is no peace. The Uyghur Policy Act of 2023 embodies this principle by striving to bring justice to those who have suffered under the oppressive policies of the CCP. Supporting this bill will send a powerful message that the United States stands firmly against human rights abuses and supports the rights and dignity of all people. I urge you to lend your support to S. 1252 and help ensure its passage. Thank you for your attention to this urgent matter and for your continued commitment to human rights.
