International Uyghur Human Rights & Democracy Foundation

Mission Statement

“The main purpose of establishing IUHRDF is to promote human rights, religious freedom, and democracy for the Uyghur people. It places a special focus on the rights of Uyghur women and children. Through research and documentation of human rights abuses against Uyghurs, IUHRDF aims to educate and raise awareness about the conditions of the Uyghur people living in Xinjiang Uyghur Autonomous Region of China (XUAR, the former East Turkistan). At the same time, it encourages the international community to pressure the Chinese government to respect the rights of the Uyghurs and their unique culture. It hopes to play a leading role in building a democratic Uyghur community by strengthening their understanding of their basic human rights and the importance of nonviolence in seeking social and political change”
