The genocide in China

The Chinese government is committing a genocide against the Uyghur people who live within their borders. Our own U.S. State Department's analysis confirms it—along with 50 independent global experts on genocide studies.

And yet this same Chinese Government pretends it's not happening... including getting set to host the 2022 Winter Olympics.

Those two facts cannot coexist. By allowing China to host the Olympics – long a symbol of world cooperation and an affirmation of humanity – the international community is tacitly supporting their atrocities.

That's unacceptable. I've joined with others across Massachusetts and America in calling on the International Olympic Committee to do something about it.

Join us! Tell the IOC to postpone the games or move them out of China entirely, as long as this injustice is taking place.

We cannot be silent on this.
