Tell Congress: Pass the BRAVE Burma Act

Tell your Members of Congress to pass the BRAVE Burma Act

The Myanmar military seized power on February 1, 2021. To resist this military coup, people across Myanmar have joined the Civil Disobedience Movement (CDM) and taken up arms in a new People's Defense Force. The Burmese people deserve our support in their struggle.

Our champions in Congress have introduced the BRAVE Burma Act (H.R.8863). The bill puts strong Congressional pressure on the U.S. Administration to take action to deprive the Myanmar military of the money, weapons, aviation fuel, and legitimacy that it needs to stay in power.

Introduced by Reps. Bill Huizenga (R, MI-4), Betty McCollum (D, MN-4), Ann Wagner (R, MO-2), and Brad Sherman (D, CA-32), the "Bringing Real Accountability Via Enforcement in Burma Act," or BRAVE Burma Act (H.R.8863), would press the U.S. Administration to sanction:

    • Burmese state-owned enterprises, such as Myanma Oil and Gas Enterprise (MOGE)
    • Myanma Economic Bank (MEB)
    • Any foreign persons or companies involved in the jet fuel sector of the Burmese economy

It would also create a U.S. Special Coordinator for Burmese Democracy within the State Department to develop and help implement a comprehensive U.S. strategy to promote human rights and the restoration of civilian government in Burma.
