The Falun Gong Human Rights Crisis in China — Updates, Global Impacts, and Next Actions

July 20 at 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm EDT

Free

Overview

Join us for a briefing and panel discussion by experts and a torture survivor on the current state of this human rights crisis, its global implications, and what further action can be taken by the U.S. government and others to curb ongoing horrific abuses and support victims.

Background

July 20th marks exactly 22 years since the Chinese Communist Party launched a massive campaign to eliminate the Falun Gong spiritual movement in China. Millions of Falun Gong practitioners in China have since been imprisoned, tortured, or killed, including through forced organ harvesting.

The party’s persecution of Falun Gong has also extended far beyond China’s borders, resulting in censorship, cyber attacks, and transnational repression¬†affecting believers in dozens of countries.
