20 Years of Forced Organ Harvesting in China: A Briefing for US Legislators

November 19 at 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm EST

Independent research has confirmed that the Chinese Government has been killing Falun Gong practitioners for their organs for over 20 years.

Recognized by the China Tribunal as a crime against humanity, the Chinese Government’s practice of forced organ harvesting has been understood as the primary means to suppress and eliminate Falun Gong.

What more can the US and other nations do to protect Falun Gong practitioners?

How can the US protect patients in this country from going to China to obtain these illegally procured organs?

What are the consequences for the US and other countries if steps are not taken to end forced organ harvesting?

Thursday, November 19, 2020, starting at 2:00 PM EST
