Tell your U.S. Senators to cosponsor S.2937: the BURMA Act of 2021
Tell your U.S. Senators to cosponsor S.2937, the BURMA Act of 2021 which condemns the violent military coup!
Since the February 1st coup, the people of Burma have seen increased human rights violations and militarization, and the situation is growing dire with each passing day. Despite the Burmese military junta brutal campaign of oppression to terrorize and demoralize the people, they have not won. In each of Burma’s states, ethnic nationalities are witnessing the worst of the Burmese military’s violence and crimes against humanity. While it is clear that Burma’s ethnic nationalities are disproportionately impacted by violence from the Burmese military, the country’s majority Burman group are also affected, representing the extent to which the junta’s attacks are indiscriminate and truly affect everyone in Burma.
Given the Burmese military’s unrelenting violence, it is clear that Congress must act now to support the people of Burma. The BURMA Act will showcase U.S. leadership in alleviating an increasingly dire situation and hold the Burmese junta accountable for their illegal seizure of power and hold the military accountable for their crimes.
Please urge your members of Congress to stand in solidarity with the people of Burma, and co-sponsor the BURMA Act of 2021 to end the junta’s campaign of violence and cycle of impunity.
Today, tell your U.S. Senators to support and co-sponsor S.2937!
Thanks to the US Campaign for Burma for the language for this letter-writing campaign.
