In a piece for the Washington ExaminerSenior Fellow Maureen Ferguson highlighted China’s extreme religious liberty violations. She focused on the Uyghur genocide, in particular on the testimony of Tursunay Ziyawudun, a Uyghur Muslim woman from East Turkestan.

“Though it is exceedingly difficult for me to speak about my experiences,” Tursunay said, “I have come to see it as my duty to be the voice for those people who are in the camps, those who died in front of my own eyes, and those who are being unjustly held in prison.”

Maureen finished her piece with a call for action from the Biden administration.

“Let us hope the world listens to their voices and continues to fight the religious oppression and ethnic genocide taking place in China. Let us hope the Biden administration steps up and names an ambassador for international religious freedom with the leadership stature of a Sam Brownback or Katrina Lantos Swett.”
