Dear Lovely Avaazers,
I feel so grateful to be part of a community with people who are standing up for the Uyghur people. While most of the world’s governments have remained silent, we are speaking up for the Uyghurs.
That is why I am excited to invite you to have a conversation in person with a brave Uyghur woman. This Monday, March 2nd we will gather to talk with her, and to hear about her personal journey to activism on behalf of Uyghur people around the world.
This Gathering is for all of us to reflect and share together - on how we wish to work for those 1 million Uyghurs who have been brutally detained and brainwashed, and the many more whose entire culture is being systematically erased. And to engage directly with a woman whose family is amongst that one million.
Together, we will dive into the heart, bravery, and resilience that is required of us all as we work to protect essential human rights in China and around the world.
If you feel called to this purpose, I look forward to gathering with you on March 2.

I look forward to seeing and connecting with you in this Gathering. May it further connect all of us as one humanity working to promote the rights of those most oppressed.
With hope and determination,
Andrew and the whole Avaaz team
