Further information on the panel below: 

The Uyghur human rights crisis has received increased attention as of late, but action to stop the atrocities has been slow on the part of the international community. Uyghur women in particular have been especially brutalized by the Chinese regime’s policies. We will hear from individuals with firsthand knowledge of these atrocities, the current situation, and the international response. 

Moderator: Julie Millsap, Communications Director for Campaign for Uyghurs
