China’s Rising Threat to Human Rights Webinar
August 21, 2020 at 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm EDTFree
The Chinese Communist Party (CCP) routinely violates the basic human rights of the Chinese people. Their decades of abuse are well documented, including systematically monitoring and destroying Christian churches.
Today, the CCP is detaining more than one million Uyghur Muslims in “re-education” camps, an atrocity seen in a recent viral video of these Chinese citizens being forced onto trains. In these concentration camps, communist party officials attempt to indoctrinate the Uyghur people detained into the ideological standard of Xi Jinping’s socialism.
Thankfully, this summer, Congress and the Trump administration stepped up the United States government’s response to the Chinese regime’s human rights atrocities. This increased effort includes applying Global Magnitsky Sanctions to top-ranking CCP officials for these abuses and religious freedom violations.
The ERLC, along with a broad coalition of human rights and religious freedom advocates, is advocating for the U.S. to counter China morally because of the CCP’s rising persecution of ethnic and religious minorities, including Christians.
If you’ve heard about these abuses by the CCP and are interested in learning more and getting involved, join the ERLC on August 14th at 1:00p – 2:00p ET for a discussion with an award winning Uyghur journalist, a U.S. government official, and a religious freedom advocate. This webinar will cover the persecution of Uyghurs in China and ways pastors and Christians can get involved and help. Panelists include:
- Ambassador Samuel D. Brownback, US Ambassador at Large for International Religious Freedom at the State Department
- Dr. Russell D. Moore, President of the Ethics & Religious Liberty Commission
- Rushan Abbas, Founder and Executive Director of Campaign for Uyghurs
Register today. We hope to see you there!
“The persecuted people there do not bear the image of the Chinese Communist Party membership card, nor do they bear the image of a barcode for international commerce. They bear the image of a Creator above the reach of any state, no matter that it pretends to be a god. Render unto China that which is China’s, but its people’s souls aren’t part of that deal.” – Dr. Russell Moore in a Wall Street Journal opinion piece, China’s Main Threat is a Moral One
