What is happening in myanmar?
With over 2,900 civilians killed and over 17,000 arrested, the situation in Myanmar continues to remain incredibly dangerous and consequential. As an organization, we are heartbroken and seriously worried for our many friends and family in Myanmar. The Urban Village is committed to standing with the many ethnic peoples of Myanmar in their fight for freedom, justice, and democracy.
We hope you'll join us.
Our work in Kawthoolei
Many of us are all too familiar with the situation in Myanmar and the ethnic cleansing and oppression taking place there. Many of us have immediate family who are currently hiding from the Myanmar Military.
As an organization, we have tried our best to support our community by doing fundraisers for the internal displaced people in Myanmar. We have also been able to take three teams back to the border who were able to sneak into Myanmar and distribute funds to those displaced by the violence.
We stand with all the communities in Myanmar seeking freedom, justice, and democracy.
