Gulchehra Hoja

Gulchehra Hoja is a Uyghur journalist based in Washington, DC and one of the world’s most prominent voices fighting what the US government in January 2021 officially proclaimed the “genocide and crimes against humanity” against the Uyghurs.

Her reporting on the situation in Xinjiang for Radio Free Asia – which led to the incarceration of her entire extended family – has been widely recognized in the US and Europe, and led to honors such as the 2019 Magnitsky Human Rights Award; the Courage in Journalism Award from the International Women’s Media Foundation in 2020; her recognition as one of the “500 most influential Muslims” in the world every year since 2016; and a platform at the Oslo Freedom Forum. She has been profiled for The Washington Post and the Financial Times, amongst many other publications.
