Objet :Request for support for a statement on situation in Xinjiang

As many of you probably know, we are having a day-long symposium on the
internment camps in Xinjiang at the George Washington University on November
27th where several people on this list will be presenting. In addition to
this event, we are organizing a press briefing at the National Press Club. At
that briefing, we are hoping to issue a statement signed by a substantial
number of scholars studying Xinjiang, China more generally, and Central Asia.
The text is attached. Anybody who feels comfortable with the statement's
message and willing to sign on, please send me Your Name, Title, Organization
as you would like it show up on the statement. Additionally, if you would
like to recruit additional scholars, particularly from China Studies outside
the Xinjiang realm, that would be greatly appreciated.

If you have any questions about the statement or press briefing, feel free to
contact me.
