How can I get involved?

  • Give financially. We depend on donations to host events, cover travel expenses, host this website, etc. All donations are tax-deductible and go directly to support efforts connected to the Uyghur crisis. Nobody involved with the project receives any salary or compensation from these donations.
  • Attend an advocacy event or prayer gathering.
  • Since the passage of the Uyghur Forced Labor Prevention Act, The Coalition to End Forced Labour in the Uyghur Region is currently the best resource to identify actions that you can take to make a difference. See the Take Action link below.
  • The Uyghur Human Rights Project also maintains a very helpful page with quick links to other actions you may take. Their link is also listed below.
