Today is the official day to finish off tasks for 2021!
December 29 is National Tick Tock Day.
Tick Tock Day, observed annually on December 29th, reminds us to complete any unfinished business that might need addressing before the end of the year.
As the end of the year approaches, many items call for our attention. Unfinished business usually needs to be wrapped up before the end of the calendar year. Things like larger business purchases and charitable donations for the tax year may need to be transacted before December 31st.National Day Calendar
In 2021, we made real progress in the fight against genocide and other mass atrocities and you are the reason for that.
- In December, we delivered your petitions to Harry Winston. We had more than 25,000 action takers asking the jeweler to stop selling #Genocide Gems from Myanmar. About ten minutes after we left their flagship store in New York City, they announced they were changing their policy. Way to go!
- Also in December, President Joe Biden signed into law the Uyghur Forced Labor Prevention Act. No Business with Genocide supporters sent more than 6,400 letters to their representatives in the U.S. House and Senate. Members of Congress listen when they hear from their constituents. You made this bill happen and become a law.
- Kirin Beer cut its ties with the Myanmar military. Early in the year, after the coup on February 1, 2021, Kirin Beer announced it would end its relationship with the Burmese military. More than 12,000 of you signed our petition to the company asking for this to happen and it did.
- Gainesville, Florida passed its own anti-genocide resolution. In addition to making companies and governments stop funding and profiting from genocide and other mass atrocities, we also work to educate people about the problem of genocide. Part of those efforts is the passage of anti-genocide legislatition by cities and other local and state governments. We are working on similar resolutions in a few other states.
Will you help us for National Tick Tock Day?
We are making progress but there is a lot of work we need to do. We are working to get the Burma Act of 2021 passed and signed into law. We are working to get the Biden Administration to sanction MOGE (Myanmar oil and gas enterprise). We are working to free Hotel Rwanda hero and humanitarian Paul Rusesabagina.
We can’t do these things without your help. Please help us by making a contribution.
We can end genocide if we work together.
