Burma Task Force (BTF) is a coalition of 19 US and Canadian Muslim organizations, including our parent organization, Justice For All, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, dedicated to advocating for the Rohingya and ending genocide in Burma.

BTF was originally founded in 2013 in response to systematic attacks by the untra-nationalists buddhists supported by gov military and security forces in the August of 2012 against the Rohingya minority leading to hundreds of deaths and thousands of casualties.


1 - Recognition of the situation as a genocide.

Genocide is defined in Article 2 of the Convention on the Prevention and Punishment of the Crime of Genocide (1948) as "any of the following acts committed with intent to destroy, in whole or in part, a national, ethnical, racial or religious group, as such: killing members of the group; causing serious bodily or mental harm to members of the group; deliberately inflicting on the group conditions of life calculated to bring about its physical destruction in whole or in part; imposing measures intended to prevent births within the group; [and] forcibly transferring children of the group to another group."

2 - Establishment of a UN-defended safe zone in Myanmar.

As called for by the Bangladeshi prime minister, a safe zone manned by UN peacekeepers with a mandate to defend and protect needs to be established in Burma.

3 - Transport of emergency aid supplies via airlift to refugee camps.

Ask your country to send emergency aid supplies, including: food, medicine, and tents via airlift as major ground transport is near impossible into refugee camps.

4 - Enforcement of sanctions against the Burmese regime.

Demand that sanctions be reimposed on the Burmese regime, excluding any sanctions on food and medicine.

Burma Task Force organizes campaigns, call-in-days, projects, demonstations and other events that have produced many successful results including President Obama speaking up about the Rohingya during his trip to Burma; discussions with refugee and human rights organizations to improve the treatment of Rohingya refugees in India, Thailand, Malaysia and Bangladesh; and strategic planning meetings with the OIC Ambassador.
