The Power of Youth-Led Activism with End the Uyghur Genocide The Folding Chair

    • Non-Profit

“End the Uyghur Genocide” is a youth-led activism project started in 2021 by students in Arkansas .

Mission statement: Our mission is to spread awareness and bring attention to the genocide of Uyghur people. We plan on supporting several bills within Congress and urging them to prioritize this issue. We are passionate about giving voices to those who cannot speak out and will continue until the Uyghur people are given the security, freedom, and peace everyone is entitled to.

Hadia Choudhary is currently a junior in high school. She is the founder of "End the Uyghur Genocide." Besides working on this project, she attends Quranic classes with an institute in Pakistan and with an institute in Canada. She is an official poet, a tutor, and a social justice activist. She loves to serve her community and spend time with her family and friends. She is also highly involved in her school activities, some of which include theatre, student Congress, future business leaders of America, the youth advisory council, French honorary, and student council.
