Tell Your Members of Congress to co-sponsor the Burma Bill
Tell your U.S. Senators and Congressperson to co-sponsor the new Burma Act of 2021.
The Myanmar military seized power on February 1, 2021. Since then, the army has been merciless in throwing elected representatives and human rights activists in jail. The military has murdered more than one thousand protesters and injured and imprisoned thousands more.
Since the coup, people across Myanmar have taken to the streets to resist the military's coup d'etat. This new #CivilDisobedienceMovement has awoken something in the young people of that nation that cannot be quelled or stopped by violence from the Myanmar military. They demand the international community impose strong sanctions on the military. This includes its business conglomerates Myanmar Economic Holding Limited (MEHL) and Myanmar Economic Corporation (MEC).
Congress must act. Senator Ben Cardin (D-MD) and Representative Gregory Meeks (D-NY), have led the introduction of the new Burma Act of 2021. The new Burma bills will, not only sanction and hold accountable the Myanmar military, but also provide support to Burmese civil society and much needed humanitarian assistance directly to the Myanmar people.
Please add your name and address to send an email directly to your U.S. senators and representative, demanding that they support and co-sponsor the Burma Act of 2021.
