Right now, more than one million Uyghur Muslims are arbitrarily detained and working at forced labor camps across China. This scheme is part of a broader strategy perpetrated by the Chinese government – a system of abuse that has unfolded into what has been recognized as genocide by the United States.

labor camps across China. This scheme is part of

government – a system of abuse that has

genocide by the United States.


The Uyghur Region, known to the Chinese government as Xinjiang Uyghur Autonomous Region, is located to the northwest of China. It is home to several ethnic groups, most notably the Uyghurs. Uyghur people speak a distinct language, and practice a unique culture that is different from the dominant Han Chinese group. Majority of the Uyghur population are Muslims.


Multiple fashion brands and international companies have been found to be profiting from the exploitation of Uyghurs. Some do so openly, others cover up their ties to forced labor by claiming that they cannot completely trace their supply chains.


When you buy from these brands, you are unknowingly supporting violence, suffering, torture, gender-based sexual abuses, erasure of cultural heritage and identity, and attempts to eradicate an entire people.
