More than two years have passed since the horrific events of August 2017, when mass atrocities against the Rohingya caused more than 700,000 to flee their homes in Burma. Today, the Rohingya and other minority communities in Burma continue to face severe persecution at the hands of the Burmese military. The Burmese military’s economic interests are vast and growing, and new UN reports reveal the extent to which the military enriches itself by committing human rights violations and atrocities. Please join us for a discussion on what the U.S. government can and should do next to hold the Burmese military accountable.
