Feb 28, 2018

The U.S. Commission on International Religious Freedom (USCIRF) mourns the sudden passing of Chinese human rights lawyer Dr. Li Baiguang, a devoted advocate for religious freedom who represented falsely accused Chinese pastors and others targeted for exercising their right to freedom of religion or belief. USCIRF fondly remembers meeting Dr. Li, and our thoughts are with his family. The legacy of his brave work and passion for human rights will live on.
