John Kamm’s presentation is followed by a Q & A session.

About the speaker and Dui Hua:
Dui Hua Foundation is a non-profit USA based humanitarian organization established in 1999 by businessman in Hong Kong, John Kamm. Dui Hua seeks clemency and better treatment to at-risk detainees through promotion of universally recognized human rights in well-informed, mutually respectful dialogue with China. Focusing on political and religious prisoners, juvenile justice, women in prison, and issues in criminal justice, the work of Dui Hua rests on the premise that positive change is realized through constructive relationships and exchange.

Dui Hua enjoys special consultative status with the United Nations’ Economic and Social Council and is the only independent NGO focused on human rights in China to have such status. Since its establishment Dui Hua has been supported by a number of European governments including the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Denmark. http://duihua.org
