During the “Stateless” breakfast, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, (D-Calif.), delivered remarks in support of Chinese prisoners of conscience. She toasted with Chen Guangcheng immediately following his speech.

(Washington—Sept. 24, 2015) China Aid cosponsored the China “Stateless” Breakfast to Honor Human Rights Activists at 8:30-10:30 a.m. Sept. 25 in the United States Capitol.

This event will take place on Capitol Hill and featured Chinese human rights advocates, dissidents, family members of current political prisoners, and members of Congress. The speakers gave “toasts” to the Chinese people and their human rights, rather than their repressive leaders. Those giving toasts with members of Congress included Chen Guangcheng, Rebiya Kadeer, and Lu Ping, among other human rights advocates.

Other sponsors for the breakfast included the cochairs of the Tom Lantos Human Rights Commission, Congressman Jim McGovern, (D-Mass.) and Congressman Joe Pitts, (R-Pa.) and the Congressional-Executive Commission on China, which is chaired by Congressman Chris Smith, (R-N.J.), and cochaired by Senator Marco Rubio, (R-Fla.).

Others involved in hosting the breakfast were human rights activists and leaders from human rights organizations such as Human Rights Watch, Freedom House, Reporters without Borders, the International Campaign for Tibet, Initiatives for China, Project 2049 Institute, and the World Uyghur Congress.
