Emgage is committed to combating the Chinese government’s systematic campaign of genocide against the Uyghur Muslims in the Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region (XUAR) and beyond.
In early December, the House followed the Senate by passing the ‘Uyghur Forced Labor Prevention Act’ (H.R. 1155), which was introduced this year by Rep. Jim McGovern (D-MA) and Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL), following the mass atrocities that the Chinese government has inflicted upon the Uyghurs in the Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region (XUAR) and beyond.
With the ability of the House version of the bill to dismantle the extent of Uyghur Slavery across China coming into question, both chambers of Congress finally reached a compromise on the ‘Uyghur Forced Labor Prevention Act’ and passed it through the House and Senate by December 16th.
The Biden Administration has also announced a diplomatic boycott of the 2022 Beijing Winter Olympics to take a stand against the Chinese government’s campaign of genocide against the Uyghurs.
On December 23rd, 2021, President Biden finally signed ‘Uyghur Forced Labor Prevention Act’ into law.
