Contact Congress for Religious Freedom in Burma!

On February 1st of 2021, the military of Burma launched a coup to overthrow the country’s democratically elected government. People have taken to the streets across Burma, also known as Myanmar, to protest against the coup. Myanmar’s elected leader, Aung San Suu Kyi, has been detained along with members of her party, the National League for Democracy (NLD). The coup threatens to further inflame the ongoing violence perpetrated by the military for years against ethnic and religious minorities, with the military destroying whole villages and places of worship for Christians, Muslims, and other minority communities.

This fall a bipartisan group in the U.S. Congress introduced the Burma Act of 2021 that will work to hold the Burmese military accountable for their atrocities and to support the ethnic and religious communities suffering from the attacks and deprivation. The legislation takes concrete steps to support the civil society and humanitarian assistance efforts, stem the Burmese military’s income flow with targeted sanctions, and call for a genocide determination for the atrocities committed against the Rohingya people. Your member of Congress can take action to support freedom for the people of Myanmar by supporting and co-sponsoring this legislation.
