The Karen Organization of America was established in August of 2018 to advocate for Karen people's rights at local and national level, support higher education achievement, and promote community well-being, solidarity and cooperation among Karen American communities across the United States.
Pressure the Burma Military to End Attacks in Karen State and Condemn the Coup by signing this petition.
This coup is a major setback for Burma’s democratic transition, peace, and stability in the region. Over 5,000 displaced civilians are now hiding in the jungle without food and shelter as a direct result of the war-crime currently committed, partially funded by the US government. Since 2012, the United States has provided nearly $1.5 billion to support Burma’s democratic transition and economic transformation, advance the peace process, and improve the lives of millions, including by assisting communities affected by violence and through combating hate speech and communal violence (U.S Relations With Burma, 2020).
