Lynn Yoshikawa, Advocate, Refugees International
Lynn Yoshikawa has just returned from a Refugees International trip to Burma to talk to aid workers and displaced people about the ongoing conflicts and human rights abuses, which have forced millions from their homes. As the US and Burma continue to develop their relationship, Refugees International advises that strong US and UN engagement will be key to transforming Burma’s damaged political system into one that ensures the rights of all its citizens.
