the uyghur initiative

Visibility is the first step to acknowledgement. We work to ally with other marginalized groups to develop understanding and solidarity, encourage youth involvement, and create and launch content that can be circulated to spread the truth in the words of the Uyghur people.

In Search of My Sister directed by Jawad Mir

We have developed an impact & awareness campaign for the documentary In Search of My Sister Directed by Jawad Mir. This movie follows the story of an American Uyghur activist, Rushan Abbas. Due to Rushan’s brave activism, her sister became one of 1.8 – 3 million Uyghurs detained in concentration camps by the Chinese Communist Party. In Search of My Sister is now being screened with US Embassies around the world, and Holocaust museums within the United States. 

This is an interfaith, bipartisan Jewish led coalition. The main vision of this campaign is to spread awareness about the Beijing 2022 Olympics and stimulate grassroots activism online. We have created activism tools for people to auto email their representatives.

The Olympics have immeasurable social and cultural value, and can be used to spread positive propaganda about a genocidal regime. We aim to educate about how during Nazi Germany, Hitler used the 1936 Berlin Olympics to win over the world, while building concentration camps to carry out the Holocaust. FAQ’s.
