Burma is getting away with the genocide of Rohingyas. Now India and China are trying to

make Bangladesh send Rohingyas back to the burning villages from which they fled. God

controls the world, we don’t. We have a responsibility to act whenever and wherever

genocide takes place.

 

Though our country has taken a positive stand in support of Rohingyas, we know it can do

better. At this time, 32 congresspersons from both parties have sponsored bills in the Senate

and the House addressing the atrocities in Burma. However, more congresspersons will

support the bills if they hear from you. Please note that out of all the bills that are introduced,

 

only 4% become into a law. Your support is critical. Sign up at BurmaTaskForce.org/registerFeb28 Go online now at BurmaTaskForce.org/Congress to find a ready-made message that you can eithercustomize or send directly to your senator and congressperson.
