(Washington, D.C.—July 24, 2012) A member of Congress was to congratulate ChinaAid on Tuesday in formal remarks from the congressional floor marking the group’s 10-year anniversary.
In prepared remarks made available to ChinaAid, Rep. John Carter (R-Tex.) described ChinaAid as being “at the forefront of the struggle for freedom and rights in China” and said it has been “doing important work.”
“ChinaAid is not only an effective voice for the voiceless, but is also working to make sure China’s human rights defenders are able to speak up against injustice,” the former judge said.
After giving a brief history of ChinaAid and its founder, Pastor Bob Fu, Carter said, “The work of his organization is vital, it is effective, it is bipartisan, and it is necessary. Everyone here in Congress will agree, a future China that respects the freedom of speech, the freedom to worship, and the rule of law will be a critical strategic partner with the United States.”
Carter was one of the VIPs ChinaAid invited to speak at its Tuesday morning seminar on “Human Rights, Religious Freedom and Rule of Law in China: A 10-Year Review and Future Prospects."
