About the China 18

The 18 prisoners of conscience of the China 18 represent thousands of men and women in China who work at their peril to promote and advocate for the rule of law, religious freedom, democracy, and basic human rights. As a result, these brave Chinese citizens face harassment, incarceration, torture, and often with similar consequences for their family members. Thus, we urge you to raise the cases of the China 18 by name, press for their immediate and unconditional release, and make it clear to Chinese government authorities that the international community will not let their efforts be in vain.
