Assalamu Alaikum,

 

US Congress Takes a Step Forward:

 

Thanks to your phone calls, emails, meetings and our Burma Task Force advocacy day at the U.S.

Congress, the Foreign Relations Committees of the U.S. House of Representatives and the Senate both
have passed the bills from the committee.

Now it must be voted by House and the Senate before it becomes a law by President’s signature. These
bill will put some sanctions on Burma, allocate more funds for Rohingyas, and fund the State Department
for criminal investigations into the actions of the Burmese government.

However, every year around 5,000 bills are introduced, but only about 200 become law, on average.
It is urgent that we bring popular pressure to bear on our elected representatives to compel them to pass
this bill into law. Please call your elected representatives in the Senate and House, and tell them that:

  • House Resolution 5819 and Senate Bill 2060 must be passed to stop the ongoing genocide in
    Burma
  • U.S. Congress has the responsibility to take the lead to stop this crime against humanity

 

Listen to the excellent remarks on this bill from Chairman Royce of the House Foreign Relations
Committee here.

 

Call your elected representative today! Find your elected representatives in the House and Senate here.

 

Please donate today to stop genocide of Rohingyas. Thanks to your donations the US financial
assistance to Rohingyas have increased to $200 million dollars.
