Tell Your U.S. Senators: End the Rohingya Genocide

Tell your U.S. Senators: help end the Rohingya genocide and co-sponsor Senate Resolution 34.

A bipartisan group of U.S. senators have introduced Senate Resolution 34 that urges the U.S. Administration to address Myanmar's genocide against the Rohingya by imposing sanctions on Burma's military, including the army chief General Min Aung Hlaing. Ask your U.S. senators to support and co-sponsor Senate Resolution 34 today.

Senate Resolution 34 condemns Myanmar's genocide and crimes against humanity, not just against the Rohingya but other ethnic minorities. The resolution:

  • Urges the U.S. Secretary of State to make a determination whether the actions by the Burmese military constitute crimes against humanity or genocide.
  • Urges the U.S. Administration to impose targeted sanctions on Burmese military officials, including the army chief General Min Aung Hlaing.
  • Calls on the Burmese government to allow full access to Rakhine State and full participation of UNHCR, the UN Refugee Agency.
  • Calls for ensuring that any refugees' return to Burma is voluntary, safe, dignified, and meet international refugee and human rights standards, and that the voices of the refugees are represented.
  • Calls for Rohingya refugees to be able to return to their places of origin, or other locations as desired.
  • Calls on the Burmese government to ensure full implementation of the recommendations of the Advisory Commission on Rakhine State, which includes providing equal access to full restoration or granting of full citizenship for the Rohingya population.
  • Calls on the United States Government to continue to be a top donor nation for humanitarian aid in Burma and Bangladesh.

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

We have the responsibility right now to help end the genocide of the Rohingya. Let’s take action together and take action now.

Thank you,
