On 12/2/2019, Uyghur community members from the DMV got together with an urgent UAA call and visited over 300 House Representatives DC offices to advocate our bill that will be on the floor on 12/3/2019.

There were about 40 Uyghurs who knocked on each door one by one to inform others of the Uyghurs plight and ask congress members to support the Uighur Act of 2019 (Bill S. 178) that condemns China for its gross human rights violations against Uyghurs and other minorities.
