The fashion industry remains complicit in China
Yesterday, September 9, 2021, people from all over came out to the End Uyghur Forced Labor: Fashion Week Call to Action.
Despite the rain, people took the opportunity to come out and call out the fashion industry for being complicit in China’s crimes against the Uygurs. We were proud to stand with the Campaign for Uyghurs, Freedom United, Jewish Movement for Uyghur Freedom, SumOfUs, and Uyghur Human Rights Project.
No Business with Genocide is committed to making companies and governments stop funding and profiting from genocide and other mass atrocities. As such, Fashion Week was the perfect time to call out this industry for looking the other way as Uyghurs are disappeared, forced into labor camps, and killed.
Many people think that genocide is a problem from a different era. The problem is this far from the truth. We understand that no one is free until we all are and will continue to stand with the Uyghurs until they are fully free and allowed to live and practice their religion as they wish. Will you join us?
You can also sign our petitions to stop companies from profiting from and funding genocide. Here are a few:
We will be adding more soon so check back!
The U.S. Senate passed the Uyghur Forced Labor Prevention Act but the House of Representatives has not. If you are in the United States, will you write your rep and ask them to sign on? Go here to do that.
