Allies and Supporters

Allies are people who have in some way spoken out and raised awareness about the atrocities currently taking place in Rohingya. Partners are figures to the left that have worked with us to recognize the issue as a genocide and not an Ethnic Cleansing. Many of them have also aided the Burma Task Force in other methods of advocacy.
