Mission

Campaign for Uyghurs (CFU) works to promote and advocate for the human rights and democratic freedoms of the Uyghurs and other Turkic peoples in East Turkistan, referred to by the Chinese government as the Xinjiang Uyghur Autonomous Region. With a special focus on Uyghur women and youth, our organization mobilizes individuals and the international community to build bridges, raise public awareness, and take action on the Uyghur issue. We engage persons and entities to work together to stop the systematic human rights abuses against the people of East Turkistan.

What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

Despite a crackdown on foreign journalism and a string of denials from the Chinese government, camera footage, satellite footage, leaked documents, whistleblowers and testimonials from escapees all point to the conclusion that the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) is perpetrating a genocide against the people of East Turkistan. This has been corroborated by the Holocaust Museum report, U.S. atrocity determination, Canadian genocide report, the Uyghur Tribunal, the UN report, and many other similar decisions. The genocide determination verdict by The Uyghur Tribunal was made on December 9th, 2021 marking it as Uyghur Genocide Recognition day.

Advocacy Training for Uyghur Women and Youth in the Diaspora

Uyghur women and youth are disproportionately impacted by the ongoing genocide: we aim to empower them to become leaders in the diaspora community. CFU’s training workshops prepare Uyghur women and youth to handle the roles of being an activist, and provide the skills to start grassroots campaigns. CFU also holds workshops for non-Uyghurs to educate interested people in basic advocacy and activism, details about the Uyghur genocide, ongoing initiatives, and how to mobilize their friends and create local campaigns.

Population(s) Served
People of Central Asian descent
Children and youth
Adults
Women and girls

CFU meets with legislators and policymakers across the globe, as well as in both the U.S. House of Representatives and Senate to engage on issues regarding the repression of Uyghurs and the Uyghur genocide. CFU works closely with other Uyghur and non-Uyghur organizations to coordinate and advocate before lawmakers to achieve our objective of supporting legislation that will support Uyghurs and punish the perpetrators of the Uyghur genocide. CFU promotes legislation that it believes is crucial to ending the Uyghur genocide and protecting refugees.

Population(s) Served

CFU seeks to serve as a bridge between networks amongst Uyghur communities and non-Uyghur grassroots groups, faith communities and academic institutions. Both in the United States and internationally, CFU organizes, participates, and presents at public rallies, commemoration events pertaining to China’s human rights abuses, Uyghur genocide to increase public attention and thus to create international pressure to eventually hold the perpetrators accountable and end the crimes against humanity in East Turkistan.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Our mission is to counter the Uyghur genocide by raising awareness, activating global grassroots organizations and civil societies, building solidarity with other persecuted communities, and enabling the Uyghur diaspora to construct productive campaigns to raise awareness and impact policy.

We strive to mobilize the international community into action to stop the human rights atrocities in East Turkistan. Our vision is to foster and activate a world community that counters genocide, crimes against humanity, and other human rights violations, nurturing a free and democratic world.

We see the treatment of the Uyghur people as part of a broader threat to freedom and democracy from authoritarian regimes. We believe that standing up against these crimes is about saving the future of the free and democratic world.​

We aim to achieve our goals by exposing the truth and raising awareness about the atrocities faced by the Uyghur people and other East Turkistani communities, activating global grassroots organizations and civil societies, building solidarity with other persecuted communities, and enabling the Uyghur diaspora to construct productive campaigns to raise awareness and impact policy.
