Mihrigul Tursun

Uyghur Mihrigul Tursun, born in 1989, was imprisoned several times in the Chinese «re-education camps» of Xinjiang. During her detention, one of her sons died in Chinese custody. In 2018, Mihrigul Tursun gave her harrowing testimony before the US Congress describing inhumane conditions and torture methods. Later that year, she was awarded the Citizen Power Award.
