End the Genocide of the Rohingya

It is six months since Burma's army launched its attacks on Rohingya communities. Since then, nearly 700,000 Rohingya have fled to Bangladesh. As new mass graves are discovered, we are still learning the full extent of the Burmese army's march towards genocide of the Rohingya.

Six months on, we must press Congress to put tough sanctions on Burma's army. Your emails and phone calls are making the difference in moving the sanctions through the U.S. Senate. Now, we must switch our attention to the House of Representatives to pass the Burma Unified Through Rigorous Military Accountability Act (H.R.4223).

Please call the Congressional Switchboard at (202) 224-3121 and ask to be connected to your representative's office. Or simply search the web for the phone number of their office in Washington, DC.

  • When you reach your legislator's office, ask to be connected to the staffer responsible for foreign policy. (Before being connected, ask for the spelling of the staffer's name and their email address.)

  • Simply tell the staffer - in person or on their voicemail - to support and co-sponsor H.R. 4223: the Burma Unified through Rigorous Military Accountability (BURMA) Act of 2017.

  • Leave your name, number, and city of residence to indicate that you live in the district.

  • Follow up with an email to the staffer. The House staffer's email will follow this format: "[first name].[last name]@mail.house.gov".

  • Email me at simon.billenness@rohingyacampaign.org and tell me how your call went and send me the name and email of the staffers.

  • And, finally, if this is the level of activism that you'd like to continue, contact me. I'm looking for a few good folks in every state willing to work together to form a local chapter of the International Campaign for the Rohingya. If that's you, let's talk!

When the world says "Never Again" after an incidence of genocide, we have to mean it.

 

Let’s make this a habit of calling Congress every week until they do the job of sanctioning Burma's army.

 

Thank you,

 

Simon Billenness, Executive Director
