No Business With Genocide: Call Your Senators

April marks Genocide Awareness Month. Let's demand that Congress step up and pass the Uyghur Policy Act.

The Uyghur Policy Act was introduced in the U.S. House by Representatives (H.R. 2766) by Reps. Young Kim (R-CA) and Ami Bera (D-CA) and the U.S. Senate (S.1252) by Senator Marco Rubio (R, FL). The bill would ensure that the US provides increased support for the Uyghur diaspora and for Uyghurs suffering from human rights abuses in China.

On February 15th, the House passed H.R. 2766 by an overwhelming vote of 414 to 6. Now we turn to the Senate to pass the companion bill, S.1252.

Please follow up your message with emails and phone calls to the staff of your U.S. senators.

Follow up #1: email the staffer of your U.S. senators

You may wish to use a succinct and direct subject line such as: "Please co-sponsor the Uyghur Policy Act (S.1252)"

Start your message with a mention of where you live in the state. Feel free to include a personal note on why you care about the Uyghurs in particular. Please use or adapt the following text in your email. Please blind copy (bcc) us on your email at

I ask that you co-sponsor the Uyghur Policy Act (S.1252).
The bill would require the U.S. Administration to take further steps to addresses human rights abuses against the Uyghurs and other minority groups in the Xinjiang Uyghur Autonomous Region in China.
Please write back and tell me when you will co-sponsor the Uyghur Policy Act. Thank you.

Follow up #2: make a phone call

Just one email or phone call from a constituent can make a difference.  So email and call your U.S. senators every day this week until they co-sponsor the Uyghur Policy Act (S.1252).

Thank you so much for your support!
