(Washington, D.C.–May 5, 2015) China Aid Vice President Kody Kness escorted Geshe Tempa, a former student of China 18 prisoner of conscience Tenzin Delek Rinpoche to meet with the offices of Congressmen Pittenger, R-N.C., Adherholt, R-Ala., Vargas, D-Calif., and Duncan, R-S.C., to highlight the plight of Tenzin Delek and other prisoners of conscience in China, including other Tibetan Buddhists, democracy activists, Falun Gong practitioners, Uyghur Muslims and human rights lawyers who remain unjustly incarcerated. Representatives of the China 18 coalition from the International Campaign for Tibet (ICT), the Southern Baptist’s Ethics and Religious Liberty Commission (ERLC), and International Christian Concern (ICC) also joined the meetings.

Kness also met with the office of Senator Kirk, R-Ill., co-chair of the Senate Human Rights Caucus, the Chief of Staff for Congresswoman Napolitano, D-Calif., and spoke directly with Congressman Franks, R-Ariz., founder and co-chair of the International Religious Freedom Caucus, to discuss the status of religious freedom and overall human rights situation in China.

China Aid founder and President Bob Fu and Kness also met with representatives from Freedom House, National Endowment for Democracy and Amnesty International to discuss ongoing initiatives to advance religious freedom and rule of law in China.

China Aid uses visits like this in Washington, D.C., to further its mission by exposing human rights and religious freedom abuses in China.
